Sudoku Puzzles as Chemistry Learning Tools
Crute, Thomas D.; Myers, Stephanie A.
Journal of Chemical Education, v84 n4 p612-613 Apr 2007
A sudoku puzzle was designed that incorporated lists of chemistry terms like polyatomic ions, organic functional groups or strong nucleophiles that students need to learn. It was found that students enjoyed solving such puzzles and also such puzzles made the boring tasks of memorizing basic chemical terms an exciting one.
