Crack the Code!

Last week, 501 and 502 visited the Museum of Mathematics.  We took part in an educator session titled, “The Secret of Telling Secrets“. In this workshop, students were asked to crack codes using a Caesar Cipher.  The activity required teamwork and perseverance! Students learned about the difference between decoding and encoding, and how to discover a code’s “key”.

Can you crack this code?


Here are some photos of Class 501 at the museum!
