This is the first of 5 lessons showing students how to solve simple sudoku puzzles. It is a step-by-step procedure using PowerPoint, printable activities and videos where Robin the Sudoku Guy demonstrates the procedures, rules, and skills needed to solve.
In this lesson students are shown how to solve horizontal blocks using the TMB, (Top Middle Bottom.) The key is to look for a number to see if it is in 2 out of 3 horizontal blocks. When this is the case we can find out where that numbers goes in the 3rd horizontal block.
By the time students reach the 5th lesson they will be able to solve simple sudoku puzzles with one number or two numbers missing in a row, column, or block. Watching the videos is fun.

Robin the Sudoku Guy
After 15 years doing sudoku puzzles, and having created the popular Sudoku Guy series, I saw a need for online tutorials designed for the young. The lessons and tutorials start with simple exercises for beginners and move through tips for those ready to tackle more difficult puzzles. Thanks to a teaching career that spanned kindergarten through university, and with a background in theatre and television, I developed a fun, easy-to-understand, step-by-step series. Each session involves a video and printables. The enthusiasm of the young people who field tested them confirmed my intuition, that sudoku is a terrific aid for assisting them to learn more about thinking skills and spatial relationships.
Here is a recent testimonial.
Hi Sudoku Guy, Thankyou for making such good videos with great tips. My son Mohammed" of 4th grade had participated in a national sudoku competition. He watched many of your videos and used all of the tips and tricks from the videos. And the results were out. We were happy to see that my son has bagged first place in the competition. So, we would like to thank you for all the good videos
