Make your own printable calcudoku puzzle. Calcudoku is a combination of an arithmetic and logic puzzle. The rules are the same as sudoku, but you get clues. Every 'cage', a group of cells printed with a thick border, has printed the result of arithmetic operation on all the numbers in the cage. With these clues the student have to complete the puzzle.
The rules are as follows:
1. The numbers you can use are from 1 to 6 or from 1 to 9.
2. In each row and in each column each number can appear only once (just like in Sudoku).
3. Each "cage" (the blocks with the thick border) shows a result and an operation (addition: +, subtraction: -, multiplication: x, or division: /). The operation applied to the numbers in the cage should produce the result shown.
4. A number may be used more than once in the same cage, but not more than once in each row or column.
In case of subtraction or division, arrange the numbers from the cage from largest to smallest. If the outcome = 1- and the numbers in the cage are 1, 2, 4 then you need to arrange them into 4 - 2 - 1.
