Sudoku has hit the world by storm. Some have proclaimed Sudoku as THE crossword puzzle of the 21st Century. This addictive puzzle phenomenon is played by tens of millions of people in North America and is gaining in popularity with each passing week. In addition to being a fun and almost addictive puzzle, Sudoku helps empower students with math skills that are invaluable for their future in the workforce, and is being used increasingly as a helpful teaching tool by parents and teachers.
