I was delighted to see all the code breaking material in this months NRICH.If you want to put all the tips and tricks to good use then why not enter The Sevenoaks School Code Break Challenge?
This code breaking competition will run between March 1st and March 17th. It is free to enter and is open to all students between years 5 and 13. To register for the competition you will need to register through your school- so ask your Maths Teacher to sign up the school at http://www.codebreakchallenge.co.uk/register/
The competition is free to enter but the best code breakers in different age groups will receive prizes which have been generously suplied by Wolfram Research (including software and other goodies).
It hopefully will be a huge amount of fun for all year groups- starting out with famous and historical ciphers, the codes get progressively harder culminating in some (hopefully) fiendishly difficult bonus rounds.
