Lesson 1 – Secret Code

First, you need to learn how to write in secret code.

For Example ‘LM M EQ QEB’

To solve this code, first write each letter of the alphabet.

A B C D E F G H I J K L M N O P Q R S T U V W X Y Z

Next, you need to pick a secret number like ‘7’.  Now count out 7 letters, A B C D E F ‘G’.  G is the 7th letter so start with G and write out the alphabet underneath your other letters.

A  B  C  D  E  F  G  H  I   J  K  L  M  N  O  P  Q   R  S  T  U  V  W  X  Y  Z

G  H   I  J  K  L  M  N O  P  Q  R  S  T   U  V  W  X  Y  Z  A  B   C  D  E  F

This is now called your ‘cipher’ for the secret number 7.  I don’t know what cipher means so I asked my dad.

ci·pher
Pronounced /ˈsīfər/
noun: a secret or disguised way of writing; a code. “he was writing cryptic notes in a cipher”
verb: put (a message) into secret writing; encode.

 

So here is how to use it.  To write ‘Hi’ in code, first look for the letter below H in your cipher, which is N.  Next look for the letter below I in the cipher, which is O.

So if we write ‘NO’ in our code, it actually means ‘HI’

If we want to write ‘Hello’ in code, that would be ‘NKRRU’.  Got it?
