Need help with MAC to IPv6 Address conversion

I'm currently taking a CIS course at my community college and I'm completely stuck in one of the lab exercises. It's in chapter 10. I've copied the text of what it is asking for. I have the Installing and Configuring Windows Server 2012 R2 book, but the way they described doing this in the book just confused me. I understand a little about converting the MAC Address, but the part about the unique local unicast on the fd00::/8 network is throwing me off. Subnetting in general seems to be a real hangup for me for some reason. If it would take too much time to explain, could someone point me in the direction of a good tutorial? Sometimes I've found I learn better when not going off the examples the book gives.

The MAC addresses of three computers on your network are listed in Table 10-4. Using these MAC addresses to form interface IDs, create three unique local unicast addresses on the fd00::/8 network and enter them into the table.
Table 10-4
MAC Addresses and IPv6 Addresses

I hope I've posted this in the correct forum. My apologies if it is not.
