You may already know about my blog posts on the ‘Dancing Man’ cipher. If not, check them out here;
34. The Dancing Cipher
97. The Dancing Cipher (part two)
Now, I have two parallel classes and I want to set the Dancing Man project as a homework, but they’ll be doing the task at different, but overlapping times. I don’t want the second class to have an unfair advantage, so I’ve written a second task. All the instructions are the same, but it’s a different text. I’m not sure whether to give each class a different text or whether to randomly assign both texts within both classes to avoid copying/generate confusion.
This text is a little more interesting than the last one … think zombies!
You can download an advanced (Beta?) copy below and I’ll update you on how it went, after I’ve done it.

Another Code sheet, but this time on Pythagoras’ theorem. The sheet covers Pythagoras (find hypotenuse and shorter side), Pythagorean triples, problem solving and rounding to 2dp.

If you look back to one of my early blog posts called ‘The Dancing Cipher’ on code breaking, I explained how to use the ‘Dancing Men’ code as an extended homework project.
