Math is fun. Ask the students in Teressa Scott’s third-grade class about working cooperatively to solve Sudoku puzzles.
Sudoku is a type of math puzzle that has a unique solution, which can be reached logically without guessing. Players enter digits from 1 to 9 into the blank spaces. Every row and every column must contain one of each digit. Every 3-by-3 square also must contain one of each digit.
Scott uses this strategy to differentiate instruction as the students become better math-problem solvers.
