M7020: Breaking Codes in Splash Spring 2019 (May. 04 - 05, 2019)
In this class, I hope to teach students about the history and techniques of codemaking-codebreaking. I will cover different methods of encryption starting from Cesar ciphers to DeVigenere cipher to (if time permits) RSA. The class should be accessible to most students that are interested in code-making/breaking, but may have some coding parts (as part of activities of code-breaking).
