  • Sudoko teaches many of journalism's best lessons: accuracy, attention to detail, the importance of looking for patterns and the fact things are not always what they appear to be.
  • Things are not always what they appear to be. Sudoku appears to be about numbers. It's not. There is no math in Sudoko.
  • Then there's accuracy. If one number is wrong, the whole puzzle is wrong. That's a terrific lesson in accuracy. People can work for several hours (as I did last night) only to realize they made a mistake some place in the puzzle. It's all over.
  • Paying attention to detail is another lesson. Sudoku has vertical and horizontal columns and 9 small squares. When placing a number in a bottom row, you have to check to insure that number appears no other place in that square or at the top of that column.
