A fun way to learn Grasshopper

To help you learn Grasshopper, McNeel Miami has 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. Players also learn problem-solving, logic, and sequential reasoning in a socially interrelated and entertaining environment.

The card game consists of 126 cards for Level 1. Players have the option to download the free PDF file. Print out the cards on your printer to use with the game and videos. Be creative: use FaceTime and web cameras to play with students remotely. You can also order the physical cards online.

In addition to the cards, players may get the Level 1 videos from our Vimeo On Demand page. During the COVID-19 crisis and for an entire year, receive free access to the videos with the code: HELP4EDU. These videos will show you different ways to write the definition that solves each assignment. The videos are available in either English or Spanish.

You can find more ways to solve the assignments on our YouTube channel too:

Assignments from 1-6:
Assignments from 7 to 12:
Assignments from 13 to 18: 

Please share comments and images of what your students are achieving with SudoHopper3D and Grasshopper.

Stay safe, stay well, thanks.
