Abstract

The Department of Chemistry and Physics, Augusta State University, Augusta, Georgia, developed sudoku puzzles that use chemistry terms in such a way that chemistry is made desirable to students. The easiest puzzles can be solved by inspection. Informal student feedback indicates that assigned puzzles are generally helpful in learning the chemistry and are more enjoyable than traditional rote methods of memorization. The students preferred to use the chemical symbols to solve the puzzles.
