Product Description
Looking for ways to engage students?
Looking for a unique way to review vocabulary?

Starting with a set of ten vocabulary words about functions, the students must first complete the worksheet activity, matching terms to definitions. They then must use the number/letter pairs to substitute into the Pseudo-ku template. Lastly, they solve the puzzle using the basic rules of sudoku.

Students love puzzles, especially sudoku puzzles. This activity involves a “Pseudo-Ku.” Pseudo meaning “not genuine, a sham.” This doesn’t mean that there is anything false about this activity. It just doesn’t start with numbers, so it appears to be a Sudoku, hence a pseudosudoku (that is a mouthful).

There are many advantages to doing puzzles in math class, especially Pseudo-Ku, a game of logic, critical thinking and making decisions based upon available evidence.

Pseudo-ku is a game that rewards students who have good attention to detail – who notice patterns, spot opportunities, and find the right moment to make a move. Promoting students’ attention to detail can help math students become orderly and methodical thinkers. They will be thinking strategically and solving creatively.

AND Pseudo-ku gives students a sense of accomplishment when they can solve a puzzle, especially one they find difficult.

NOTE: This puzzle is also included in the MATH Vocabulary PseudoKu Packet (with nine other puzzles).

key words: sudoku, dependent variable. independent variable, domain, range, functions, relation, intercept, maximum, minimum, relation, vertical line test
