This evening saw me finish up the first section to my new website, Crypto Corner. This website is dedicated to the learning of codes and ciphers, and provides lots of information about a whole range of codes. At the moment, the site has gone live in a Beta state, with large sections still needing to be completed, but there is a good starting point, with an entire section on monoalphabetic ciphers.
For each code, I have written a huge chunk of information about how it works, and a little history about it too. There are also flash interactivities to use the codes, which will be really useful to make codes quickly for a lesson, or just for a bit of fun.
I have included a page on Educational Uses of cryptography and the website, as well as a section with some Downloadable resources.
I am looking forward to this project expanding over the next few years, to hopefully provide a one-stop shop for all the information you could possibly want on Cryptography.
If you are interested in codebreaking, then please swing by to have a look at crypto.interactive-maths.com.
I am a maths teacher looking to share good ideas for use in the classroom, with a current interest in integrating educational research into my practice.
