I accidentally discovered that if I 'warm up' my brain by doing 1 or 2 sudoku puzzles before studying math, the lesson seems easier and sticks in my brain better.
Wish I'd discovered this a long time ago.

Thanks, Holly! I'll have to share this with my 8th grade students!
They might prefer other types of thinking games, like crosswords...
My guess is that it gets you thinking and this is what helps.
If I don't do it before math class, I can tell the difference. This is not a reflection on the teacher - she's a nice person and keeps it lively.
