This video lesson provides a more advanced approach to cryptography than the more experiential Sturtevant cryptography lesson also in the BLOSSOMS video library. Students will learn about the history of cryptography and they will also learn how powerful even a limited knowledge of mathematics can be as they work through the math used in cryptography.
