Very good - one suggestion. Could you provide a little more direction for Clue 5 for this teacher... I didn't have time to work through the entire activity.

I'm going to use this with my high school computer class as an Excel, database project. They can use the computer as a tool to decode. Can't wait to try it!

They didn't even realise they were doing math. They all completed theb first part fairly quickly which meant that they were well on their way when the tasks became more difficult. Sound psychology!
