Mathematics 24x7

There is no escape...believe it or not. Mathematics is everywhere.

I am a great fan of Japanese puzzles as all may already know.

Now the newest puzzle from Japan is Ken-Ken, which looks much like sudoku but has mathematical operations in it. Because of stupid copyright issues the puzzles are created by different names and the version of my favourite website Conceptis is Calcudoku. Conceptis offers free widgets to blogs. Read the instructions here
The same article contains links to all relevant info about the Calcudoku's.

Have fun!

This is so interesting Leena. I have added the widget here .
A big thanks for sharing this.
That is the tutorial but you can also get the game.

The puzzles change with certain periods and people can play the game at your blog :)

You can see an example in http://conceptisaddict.blogspot.com on the right sidebar.
I could not add it here....
Leena, thanks for the widget. I will add these puzzles to the Family Multiplication Study.

How hard is it to create Ken-Ken puzzles? My rule is that all math participants ALWAYS have to create their own versions of all entities involved in activities.

I am not sure, I have never tried... I have left the problem creation to Conceptis and just love to solve them. Conceptis has much bigger examples on their pages. They are checked by computer and I can trust them to be correct. I think I could never reach the same accuracy :)

Hello Leena
Your blog is amazing. I gave this puzzle to my students. They were so happy in solving.

this is a great tool for use in the classroom b/c it is fun and works with the student's logic as well as their ability to do the math tables.
