Ideafest: How to make an irritating Sudoku puzzle


Do you strive to complete the Sudoku puzzle in the paper? Or are you distracted by the geometric patterns of the tiled floor?  Learn how the two are more related than it seems and how new research can help determine what makes a puzzle solvable or impossible in a presentation and discussion session. Then enjoy a hands-on exploration of the research by modelling and solving some puzzles for yourself. 

Presenters: Peter Dukes, Brittany Halverson-Duncan, Kieka Mynhardt, Joanna Niezen and Coen del Valle (Department of Mathematics and Statistics)
