CWCT Seminar: Algorithms and Rubik's Cube
The Center for Writing and Critical Thinking presents the second program in the CWCT Seminar Series this Friday when math teacher and Pro Vita Director Jasper Turner shares his simple strategies for solving the complex Rubik's Cube. The program begins at 7:30 PM in the Bellas/Dixon Lecture Hall.
A description of the program is below:
Have you ever solved a Rubik's Cube? Invented in 1974 by a Hungarian architecture professor, the cube is thought to be the most successful 3-D puzzle of all time. In its heyday, it was estimated that 1 in four people in the world had attempted a cube. Using simple algorithms, we'll solve a scrambled cube, discuss different methods, and explore some of the group theory that goes along with the cube. By the end, you'll be well on your way to becoming a speedcubing master and will hopefully have more appreciation for one of the most challenging puzzles invented.
