I thought some of you might be interested in taking a free class on discrete optimization from cousera. It focuses on teaching real world math problems, to include lessons on writing a sudoku solver. Here is a link to the page if anyone wants to sign up.

I took that one, it wasn't as engaging for me as I had hoped. (probably due to my own laziness though)
But none the less I really like Coursera and the Khan academy and I appreciate what they are doing to promote free and accessible education for everyone.

Cool - I just signed up.

Just curious, does the soduku solver use a "dancing links" type of algorithm. I've been meaning to make a solver myself, and I know at least that much!

I've been meaning to make one too. I guess this class will finally force me to actually do it haha. I'm not really sure what type of algorithm it would use though.
