Cryptography in Mathematics Teaching
Cryptography is of great importance to people of all generations and is presented as an application of
mathematical sciences. On the other way, giving mathematics as basics of cryptography reduces the application
of mathematical insights to the message “Cryptography contains Mathematics”. This paper introduces
cryptography from Caesar Cipher to Public Key Cryptography with simple examples. Using the Fermat’s little
Theorem in RSA Cryptography specific mathematical competencies are highlighted that complement standard
teaching and deepen mathematical concepts. Prohibitions in cryptography will also be discussed in this paper.
