Biannual Biannual means twice a year. It's the same as semiannual. The term shows up in a lot of money problems in algebra. Example: If interest is compounded biannually, then it's compounded twice a year. 

Binary Our regular number system is "base 10" which means that we use TEN digits: 0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9. But, there are other number systems. The binary number system is "base 2" which means that it uses just two digits: 0 and 1. Computers speak in binary numbers! Example: 110101 is binary for 53 in our regular number system (base 10).
