AIM: What is Sudoku and what skills can we learn from playing it?
HW: Enjoy Winter Break!
a) List games that you have played that involve numbers.
b) Are there any math skills that you've learned by playing these games?
Classwork: We learned how to play Sudoku in class today. The common misconception is that Sudoku is a game that requires calculations. In fact, Sudoku is a puzzle game that requires reasoning above all else. Players must be able to prove why numbers must go in their locations. This type of thinking is necessary to be successful in middle school math and beyond.
