Did you ever want to communicate with your friends in a secret way that only those who knew the secret could understand? A cipher is a tool for writing and reading secret messages. We will study three ciphers this time: the reverse cipher, Polybius cipher, and Casear cipher. You will find a template for making a Caesar cipher disk at the link below.

An anagram is a word or phrase formed by rearranging letters of another word or phrase. Most often, all the original letters are used once. For example, the words "silent" and "listen" form an anagram. This time, we will have anagrams for a warm-up and then study two ciphers: pigpen cipher and rail fence cipher.

We will finish the study of the rail fence cipher and take a quiz on ciphers. Remember, we do not quiz students, we quiz teachers. If you get a low grade, it means we didn't do a good job. Please study for the quiz - don't let us down!
