CalcuDoku Interactive: Online math will never be the sameFriday, March 20, 2009
Is it possible to turn basic math into fun? The answer is yes, now that CalcuDoku Interactive has been released on conceptispuzzles.com. Published by some of the major newspapers around the world, these math and logic puzzles are considered to be more challenging, satisfying and fun to play than Sudoku while training one’s brain at the same time.
CalcuDoku puzzles, also available for printed media, can now be played online, saved on Conceptis servers and continued from any other computer anywhere on the Internet. By taking advantage of its electronic media, CalcuDoku Interactive provides particularly useful and fun preferences such as displaying a list of all math combinations which fit in each block or showing the relevant remainders necessary to complete each block. This way, even complicated 9x9 CalcuDoku puzzles may be solved interactively without any need of using a calculator or pencil. The game also offers features common to other Conceptis’ interactive games such as save, print (including resize and multi-page), zoom in/out, undo/redo, clear all pencilmarks and check solution.
Can't wait to put your online CalcuDoku skills to test? There's a sample puzzle to start with right on this page and many more published each week in My Conceptis. To learn more about these puzzles, solve them in progressive sizes and difficulty levels and for instructions how to use CalcuDoku Interactive go to the CalcuDoku in Puzzles section.
CalcuDoku puzzles are solved by placing numbers in the grid so that the numbers 1 to N (where N is the number of rows or columns in the grid) appear exactly once in each row and column and the numbers in each block produce the result shown in the top-left corner of the block according to the math operation appearing on the top of the grid.
CalcuDoku is a family of number-logic puzzle that uses addition, subtraction, multiplication and division in creative and uncommon ways. Aiming to change the way people relate to basic mathematics, CalcuDoku is promised to provide hours of mind boggling fun while brain-training and improving one's math skills at the same time. Other internationally known names for CalcuDoku include KenKen, KenDoku, Square Wisdom, CanCan and MinuPlu. For more information see related resources below.
