Hidden Homework AssignmentsIn Cryptography teasers, a phrase or expressions has been encoded in some way (frequently by replacing letters with other letters). You need to figure out the encoding method and then decode the message to find the answer.
Mrs. Kodiac added an extra challenge when she typed this week's homework assignments for math, literature, science, and history. She hid the homework assignments in the following secret code.
[shr doc rcs,[;rd yep yjtpihj yrm

What should the homework assignments really be?
HintMake a chart and list the alphabet. First, guess and check to find the letters to match each subject. Then guess and check for the unknown letters. Or, look carefully at your keyboard.
AnswerMrs. Kodiac's code has to do with the way she typed the assignments. The code for each letter is the key to the right of that letter on a standard keyboard. Here are the real assignments:
Page six, examples two through ten
Read pages twenty through sixty
Write up your last experiment
Read chapter eight and answer the questions at the end of the chapter
