Read historical documents related to the Engine, including Blaise Pascal's account of his mechanical adding machine (in French), as well as Babbage's comments on designing ciphers. http://www.fourmilab.to/babbage/contents.html The site also allows you to run example programs, download the Java source code, and explore a Java emulator of the Analytical Engine: http://www.fourmilab.to/babbage/applet.html -|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|- ARITHMETIC - John Banfill http://members.aol.com/_ht_a/iongoal/tablcont.htm Online interactive lessons, exercises, practice, and games for grades K-8, designed to help students learn basic arithmetic concepts and methods.
