I enjoy doing Sudoku puzzles and have wondered about the mathematics behind them. It was neat to see just how to construct the puzzles, and I recognized some of the methods for solving them from graph theory. The talk was well put together and informative. Nice work. derose on May 9, 2013 at 12:44 pm I’ve always loved doing Sudoku puzzles, so this talk was very interesting to me. It’s awesome to see that math is used in them. It was very interesting to know that the fewest numbers given can be no less that 17, which seems like it’d be very difficult to do. I also liked the other talk on Latin Sqaures as well, which we actually talked about in our Stats class. Brittany did a good job presenting and explaining the methods used. Great presentation!
