KS3 & KS4 History: Code Breaking & Numeracy

This is a brilliantly interactive resource that makes the students think from the very moment the lesson begins. They have to crack various codes in order to work out the next part of the lesson. What's more this is a useful way to discuss numeracy within history as codebreaking has mathematics at it's heart. This is all part of an exercise that encourages the students to think about the activities at Bletchley Park and the breaking of the Enigma code. This works as a stand alone lesson or as part of work on the D Day landings or the Atomic Bomb as it is all about secrecy and codes.

This assembly looks at the idea of Marginal Gains, that is changing lots of things a little in order to gain a big outcome. British cycling has used this idea and now dominates the sport.
