Introduction

In this lesson students will learn about English mathematician Alan Turing, his life, and his contribution to modern day computing. They will learn how Turing’s system of computing works, and how this is still used in every electronic device to this day. They will also learn about Alan Turing’s status as a World War II hero, who was later convicted for being homosexual. They ask themselves what it means to be considered a ‘hero’.
