From the 80s to the present the Rubik’s Cube represent a big headache to anyone that try to put all the colours in the correct order without knowing a method or a certain way to do it. This course is design to be a pill agaisnt the headache, and a brief introduction to the speedcubing world (Speed-what?). Yes... there is a full dedicated community around this little devil puzzle.
With these videos you will learn how to solve a 3x3x3 cube using a very intuitive and easy method
cracking it layer by layer. There are not requiments more than the desire to learn! Having a cube is a great plus but –in the case you do not have one-- you still can use an app that simulate a cube and allow you to turn it (God bless smartphones!)... it will be tricky but you can look at this like an extra challenge!

More than the skill to impress girls/boys with your new mental superpower, you will also:

• Stress a lot by turning a cube (cruel joke).
• Understand basic operation of a three dimensional puzzle.
• Improve your capacity for logical reasoning.
• Feel better and confident in your own brain skills by solving cubes!

Finally, as class project, I challenge you to put one of the face of the cube in an order that the colours look like the flag of some countries! (“This teacher think it’s not enough suffering by putting the colours in the right place, ah?”)

Now, leave the hammer in the toolbox and let’s put your brain to work!

Happy cubing! =D
