On the Web has been investigating real-life networks and learning about probing and the topology of the AVS network. We will continue learning about TCP/IP and networking history.

Students in How to Build a Computer are tackling the Vigenère Cipher and will be passing notes to decrypt. They should come to class next week ready to trade. After we complete this activity we will learn how to crack it using frequency analysis and modern software.

Code-Fu students have been experimenting with turtle graphics to hone their sense of loops and Cartesian geometry. We will next study lists and sorting algorithms.

System of the World looked at the basic graphical transformations this week with line drawings instead of linear algebra, and learned about the connection between light, sound, gravity, and transcendental functions. We will continue exploring and expanding on transformations and the rendering pipeline.
