  1. This was a great one for me to use in math class! There's some key understandings about the minimum and maximum possible sum of various funny-shaped regions that we can use here. Some of my kakuro knowledge definitely came in handy! And once I solved it, it seemed so much easier the second time when doing it with my class -- lots of the important steps were very memorable!

    1. Hi Joshua,
      Thanks for your comments. You make sudoku variants in your math class? sounds great !

      [spoiler] Yes, the purpose of this one was to deal with minimum/maximum sums for groups of diagonals, without having a minimum or maximum for a single diagonal. That makes it a hard sudoku.
