Mathematics Teaching Laboratory - offered virtually
In the Mathematics Teaching Lab, students will learn the basics of Cryptography (code making and breaking). First, students will learn simple substitution ciphers. Next, we will explain prime numbers and factorization, and why their use is important in Cryptography. Next, students through simple examples, will learn how to build a code using prime numbers. Finally, students will decode a message using their encryption/decryption algorithm and their calculators.
The experience can be used as an optional teaching topic for Regents Algebra, Advanced Algebra and Trigonometry, Precalculus, AP Calculus, IB Standard Level Mathematics, and IB Higher Level Mathematics.
$26 per student.
The laboratory takes 3 hours. Currently offered virtually . No limit on class size .
