Entrepreneurship

This is an introductory course to what entrepreneurship is all about: problem solving. THAT is how you make the money! People pay top dollar for great solutions. How do you become a problem solver? Well, first learn to identify what a problem is. Ask yourself ‘Why does this problem exist?’ Next, after some research, come up with a solution. The last and most important step: test, test, and test your solution again to ensure that it truly works. Whether you want to make money or impact the world around you, this class will teach you the fundamentals of how to do just that.

Calcudoku puzzles look like sudoku puzzles, but there’s a twist: you need to use mathematics to find what numbers go in what cells. These cells form what we call “cages.” Each cage will have a math operation that you’ll need to perform to find out what the missing numbers are. Just like in Sudoku, though, no number can appear twice in any column or in any row.
