About SudoHopper3D®
Play, ponder and learn! 

Lines. Shapes. Iterations. Parameters. Components. Random designs. Creativity. This and more is what students get when they play with SudoHopper3D®.

“You cannot teach today the same way you did yesterday to prepare students for tomorrow.” -John Dewey

Very early in life, humans develop a natural curiosity about pretty much everything, from how things work, to their surrounding world and its shapes. They try to figure out and identify these shapes right from the start, even when they can barely see.

By pure instinct, humans try to solve all problems--from the simplest one-step problems to very complex ones that have infinite solutions. There is an endless array of possibilities where each student grows and experiences their own freedom.

“Education, for most people, means trying to lead the child to resemble the typical adult of his society… but for me and no one else, education means making creators… You have to make inventors… not conformists”, said recognized psychologist Jean Piaget who dedicated his life to observe the way children learn.

Through history, psychologists, philosophers, and educators have learned that the best tools a student can have are those that allow them to creatively venture outside of their comfort zones to explore the unknown. We think that SudoHopper3D® is one of those tools.

“The purpose of education is to replace an empty mind with an open one.”  
Malcolm Forbes
 

As educators, we have the responsibility to be role models to our pupils. We must not fear implementing new techniques and technologies--techniques and technologies that will improve the quality of the education our students receive. Once the teacher and student find a harmonious partnership, a lasting impact will occur. So keep in mind Alvin Toffler’s words: “The illiterate of the 21st Century will not be those who cannot read and write, but those who cannot learn, unlearn, and relearn.”



 


SudoHopper3D®:

Grasshopper® is a graphical algorithm editor tightly integrated with Rhinoceros® (Rhino) 3D modeling software. Grasshopper offers new ways to develop and control computer generated models, together with presetting repetitive processes and producing geometry through mathematical functions; a form created by a series of mathematical operations instead of conventional commands.

To help in learning Grasshopper, we have created SudoHopper3D®, a card game to improve the overall understanding of parametric thinking. SudoHopper3D® playfully takes you on a journey through mathematics, algorithms and basic coding. Players surprisingly learn concepts such as vector geometry and trigonometry.

SudoHopper3D® advantages do not stop at simple math skills. Besides the unique math portion of the game, players also learn problem-solving, logic, and sequential reasoning in a socially interrelated and entertaining environment.
