1. Introduction: Hi, and welcome to the course where you will know the easiest way how to solve the Rubik's cube. My name is black and I'm the smartest company owner. Smart tool isn't intellectual development courses for kids. And the company works since 2017. And during this time, we have built more than 2 thousand children. Personally, I have told over 1000 children. The Rubik's Cube plays an important role in our classes. With his help, we are developing memory, concentration of attention, and even learn languages. All our students may solve the Rubik's cube with open and close ties. I know the easiest way how to solve the Rubik's cube, because I have told a lot of people how to solve it. And I want to share my knowledge with you. After completing this class, you will a 100% learn how to solve the Rubik's cube. So German now, and let's go. 2. Notation: Excellent, let's talk. What do we need to know about the Rubik's cube? It consists of three layers. At first one is an upper layer, the second one is the middle layer, and the third one is the down layer. Rubik's cube has six faces with different colors. White, yellow, green, blue, red, orange. Each face has Latin notation. Right, left, up, down, front, and back. And adds the bands from how we hold our cube. For example. Now I hold it like this to white center on top, the Green Center on front. And for me now, Apuleius here. But if I take the cube like this for me, up allay will be layer with the yellow centre. And the last thing you need to know is the components of the Rubik's Cube. If you look carefully, you will see that Rubik's cube consist of little cubes. If you count, you will count 26 little kips. And this 26 little cubes can assist from pre parts. The first part is the center. What do you need to know about the center? Center has only one color on each face. And it's always fixed. It doesn't matter how many time we will retain faces. The center will be on the same place. The second part is edges. Edges has two colors and it's always located close to the center. And third one is the corners. Corners has three colors and always are located between three edges. Perfect. Now you're ready to start learning to solve Rubik's Cube. Let's go. 3. 1 layer, yellow cross: The Rubik's Cube solving starts with a cross. Maybe some of you already tried to do it, or maybe you already have done it. But there is one thing you need to know. It's not enough to solve just to cross unit, to solve the correct cross. What does it mean? Correct grass is when adjust colors on upper layer are meshed with the nearest centers, colors like you can see on my cube here. And the yellow and green ACH, yellow color meshed with the yellow centre and the green color meshed with the green Santa. And the other edges has the same. You can see it here. So this is the correct cross. Now, I will learn you the easiest way how to do it. First of all, you need to solve the yellow edges across the wide Santa. I think most of you could done it without my help. But despite this, I will show you how to do it step-by-step. Okay? Well, first of all, you need to make sure that you hold your cube with the white Santa on top. Uptown. To solve this, edges across the wide Santa, you should find the edges on the middle layer. If you have no edges on middle unit to find it on the DOM phase. If you have no edges on down phase unit, look down layer. And here it is. So we need to remove this edge on top with, first of all, we need to remove it to the middle layer. And how we can do it. We just need to turn the right or to the left, the front face. And here it is, the yellow edge on the middle layer. And now we can just turn up the face was yellow edges. And I mentioned with the white center after. Let's keep fine. The next edge. So here it is, willing to do the same. But first of all, when it just make sure that under this edge is no yellow edges. So there is no yellow edges. And we just turn the front face to the left. And now what could surely thermally tab because there is no yellow edge. For example, if there was dissertation when the yellow edge here, if we just turn into tau, we will destroy this hatch. So in this case we need to turn it to the left and only after turn up the right face. So the next step here is the yellow edge when im just turn to the left, the front phase of the first tunneling trended on APA phase is now yellow edge. And after just turn up the right face, of course, if there is no yellow edge. Okay? And the last edge, how we could remove it here. We just need to turn that up a face to the left. And now we could surely thrown this face up and match this with the white Santa. So great. We have the yellow edges across the wide Santa. The hardest part is left behind. Now we just need to manage the remaining colors on edges with the same colors on Santa. So here it's already done. So the orange color matched with the orange Center. And we just need to remove this edge and match that with the yellow centre. And we can do it just to turn to the left two times the front phase 12. And here it is. The yellow edge meshed with the yellow centre. So the next edge, the green color. But here is the blue color. That's when we should turn the upper face and matched it good, that green center under the same. So the red color with the red Center and the blue color with the blue center. And here you can see the correct cross. And it's really great congratulation. So let's move on. 4. 1 layer, corners: Okay, if solved the correct cross. Now to completely solve the first layer unit, to learn how to put the corners to the right place. And I will show you the easiest way how to do it. Let's look under down layer unit to find the corner with the yellow color. Then you need to look at the remaining two colors. On this corner. I have blue and orange events that I need to turn that down face in order to put the corner between the Centers with the same colors. So here is the blue and orange center and my corner with the same colors. So further, you need to remember a simple algorithm. Turn down the right face and turn left. The down phase. Then turn up the right face and turn right the down phase, and repeated till the yellow color on the corner won't be on top. So I need to repeat it. Down. The left, up, right, down, left, up, right, and down left, up, right, down, left, right. And here it is. The yellow color on the corner isn't OK. So after I did the same with the remaining corners, if you couldn't find a corner on down layer, then it should be on the upper layer or on the down phase. Here it is. And the colors as a little red between two centers. So we just need to repeat the algorithm. Down left, up, right, down, left, up, right, down, left, up, right. And here it is. This corner on the right place. And the yellow color, as I'm told, that's what winning. So the next one is the orange and green. So we need to put it in between green and orange centers. And make algorithm again. Down, left, up, right and down left, up, ride down, left, up, right, down, left, up, right, down, left, up, right. Okay? And the last corner is here. And we just need to repeat the algorithm. Down left, up, down, left, up, right, and here it please. In the first layer is done. There is one more information. For example, you could have this stations when the corners can be on the upper layer, but not on the own place. For example, here you can see this corner. It has orange and green color, but the centers is green and thread. And dissertation were just think to apply the algorithm only one time down left, right? And after we need to put this corner, but when those centers with the green and orange color. And then applied the algorithm again. Down, left, up, down, left, up, right, down to the left for Down, up, right, down, left, up riots. And then the last corner we just have to put here under the same congratulations. Let's move on. 5. 2 layer: Okay, the next step, we need to turn the cube to see why it center on top. Then an upper face, you should find the edges without white color. Here it, this red, blue edge wanted to match the front color and edge from the blue, the blue center. And then we need to swap the edge on the upper layer with the edge on the middle layer. Bad how to understand with the right one or with the left one times ten to the look on APA color on this edge. And as rat, that's means when it put this edge to the left because on the left side is red center. So the solved second layer, you should learn to new algorithms. The first plan, which put this edge to the left, and the second one, good, this edge to the right. So let's start memorizing. In this situation, I need to put it to the left, and that's when I need to turn the derived upper phase. Then turn the left phase, getting back the upper face and get beg the left phase. After I need to turn to the left, the upper face. Then turn to the right, the front phase. Again bag the upper face and get back the front face. And here it is the edge on the right place. So the second algorithm, here is the second situation where we have and blue, orange edge and window devoted to the right because on the right is an orange center. And if we need to put it to the right, when to turn to the left, to the upper face, then turn up the right phase. Get beg the upper face, and get Baghdad right phase. After, we should turn to the right, the upper face, turned to the left, the front face. Get beg the upper face, and get back the front face. And here it is, the second edge and the right place. So to solve this cube, you should use this to new algorithms. And now I should tell you one more thing that you should know. When you try to find the edge on APA layer without white color, it couldn't do it. At death means that the edge is already on the middle layer, like you can see here on my station. And what we need to do in this case, we should swap the, add this edge with the edge on Apple layer. And then we could do it with the same two algorithms. If we take the cube like this, when this edge is on the left side, we should use the first algorithm. And if it on the right side, we should use the second one. So let's use the first one. We need to turn to the left, the upper face, turn up the left phase, given the egg, the upper face and yet beg the left face after when need to turn to the left, and the upper face turned to the right, the front face, and given beg the upper face and get back the front face. And now our edge transferred here. And we can just match that with the orange Center and do the algorithm and can turn to the rights. Turned to the left, face up and get back the upper face, Kent Beck, the left face, then turned to the left, the upper face turned to the right, the front face, get beg the upper face and we get back the front face. And here it is, the second layer is done. Now you know all cetaceans and you could solve the second layer. Let's move on. 6. 3 layer, white cross: Okay, we've done with the second layer, and let's get down to this hard won. And now we should solve the white cross. I'll show you the algorithm to do it. Look, we have three shapes form. The white edges on upper face, the dots. And they'll shape and the line. What does it mean? And the algorithm that I will show you transform all this shape step-by-step. For example, we have start with this Q. And we will do the algorithm that tells show you right now. So why do we need to turn to the right, the front face? Then the next algorithm, turn the right face up, turn to the left, the upper face. Now, turn back the right and turn back up and then turn back the front. So now we have the L shape would take it. And there is one important information. We should take the cube like this. The L shape should be inverted. Here. You can take it like this or like this, because in this case it wouldn't be work. So we take lightbulbs and do the same algorithm. If you remember, it's really similar with the algorithm that we'll learn when we solved corners on first layer. But we, at that time we made it went down layer. But now we move up a layer. So let's do it again. The front face, we turn to the right and it is up, left, down, right, and turn back. And we have the line. So now also, you should keep the cube like this. Not like this. It's very important. The line should be. Yeah. So Pleasantville guardsman gamble, the front to the right and up left, down riots and turn back the front face. So we haven't across. Let's move on. 7. 3 layer, correct white cross: Okay, the next step we should solve the correct cross hockey. Remember what does it mean is when the edges are matched with the nearest centers. And now we should learn the new algorithm. And here is also three shapes like in the previous algorithm, but those situation we could show the shapes here on an upper layer. Now, we should find them on the front of our edges. What does it mean? The first shape is when no edge matched with the centers. Like here. The second one is when two opposite edges are matched with the centers. And look at the imagine that here is the line. So like in the previous lesson here has a dot, here is the line. And the third one is when two nearest adds meshed with the centers. And here we could imagine that this is the letter L in previous algorithm, L was inverted. Now it's normal l. So let's start and I will show you how it works. Let's take the first one, the dot shape. So here is no edges managed. But if we turn up a layer one time or two times, we will see that there is two opposite edges which are matched with the centers. Let's do the algorithm. Right layer up, upper layer to the left, right layer down, up a layer, left, right. Leah up, upper layer two times to the left and right layer down, and Appalachia to the left. Look, when it did this algorithm. I need to turn up to layer to make the third shape like here. When two nearest edges are matched with the centers. And take the cube like this. So here also is very important how you hold your q. So in first situation, when we do the second shape, we should hold our cube. To see here this vertical line. And the here we should hold cube and imagine that here is the outlet her. And do the algorithm again. Up, left, down, left, up to times, left, down, left. In here, you can see the correct cross. 8. 3 layer, position white corners : Okay, the next one we need to do is to position our corners to the right place. But do we need to understand what does it mean, the right place? The corner is on the right place when all colors are meshed with the three nearest centers, like here. So I have blue, red, and white colour. And here's the red, white, and blue center. When it fine the corner which is on the right place. You should take your cue like this in order to be located on the left side from you and do the next algorithm. And if you have no corners in the right place and just do the algorithm and then try to find the corner. Ok. Let's memorizing. Turn up the right phase and turn right, the upper face. Then turn up the left face and turn left the upper face after turn down the right face. Then turn right the upper face. And turn down the left face. After turn left, the upper face. You should repeat this algorithm until all corners wouldn't be on the right place. So here I have all corners on the right place. But if you did this algorithm and here is no corners on the right place, you should repeat this algorithm really is. Let's move on. 9. 3 layer, orient white corners: Great, we are at the finish line. The last what he needed to do is flip the corners in order to put white colour on top. And I wanted to tell you a good news is you already know the algorithm to do it is the same algorithm that we have learned when solved corners on first layer. But there is one very important moment when you do this algorithm. Down left, up, right and down left, up, right, down to the left, up, right, down, left, up, right. Here. We have done is. But the information about what I want to tell you is that when you're done this algorithm, you should bring the corner which is unflipped to the same place. Or are you just flip the corner? And don't be afraid that the cube is disassembled. Just keep do that algorithm. Down, left, up, right, down, left, up, right, down, left, up, right, down, left, up, right. And the left corner, brink here. And do the same algorithm. Down, left, up, right, down, left, up, right, down, left, up, right, down, left, up, right. 10. Conclusion: Now you can solve Rubik's Cube.
