Cutting precisely on the lines, making sure I didn’t stray and accidently cut out part of an article, I carefully extracted the Sudoku puzzle from the daily newspaper before my father came to the breakfast table to read it. Then, working as fast as I could, I began deciphering the puzzle, eliminating numbers I knew didn’t belong in a certain box and writing, in tiny print, all the numbers that could potentially fit. Gradually, as the pieces came together, the completed puzzle unfolded. I glanced…

not needed for the definitions, because the speaker only talks about the difference between the two arts to make sure there was not ambiguity in his arguments. This contrasts to the slides where the author is taking a stance. The second slide in the remix contains an image showing the University of Michigan and Michigan State University rivalry. This rivalry is very well understood by residents of Michigan as being a very polarizing argument. With the text of “In constant conflict” the…

I would give consideration to these two areas as I plan my lesson and instruction. Another consideration I would make is: where the devices and games are coming from. Personally I think bringing in games like Sudoku or Yahtzee are great for problem solving. However, I would be a bit apprehensive when it comes to hand held personal gaming devices.
