Coloured Sudoku: 4 x 4 is a collection of easy coloured sudoku puzzles.
The twenty puzzles in this collection each use 4 colours which are placed in 4 by 4 grids.
The challenges become more difficult as students progress through them. The puzzles have been designed to build students’ confidence as they grow in their ability to think logically.
Once students have worked through these puzzles, they will be ready to try the more difficult challenges in our 5 x 5, or 6 x 6 Sudoku Challenges.

The activities in the Coloured Sudoku Series are appropriate for students across a range of year groups in Primary and Secondary schools.
The 4 x 4 challenges are harder than the 3 x 3 ones but easier than the 5 x 5 or 6 x 6 ones. We believe they would be most suited for students in Stages 2 or 3.
- NSW Syllabus: The challenges are aligned with the Problem Solving and Reasoning outcomes in the Stage 1 to 4 Working Mathematically outcomes.
- Australian Syllabus: The challenges do not align with any specific content in the Australian Syllabus, but develop problem solving and reasoning skills, which lay a solid foundation for students’ numeracy skills.
