Rubik’s Cube lesson plans

Teachers, need a topic for an upcoming class? Why not teach the cube?

The You CAN Do The Rubik’s Cube program is designed to get the country’s youth engaged in math and science in a fun way! The Solution Guide and lesson plans have been designed to help educators engage youth in grades 3-12 and special education programs with hands-on education activities that are aligned with standards set by the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics (NCTM), State Curriculum Frameworks, and the Partnership for 21st Century Skills. Lesson plans show teachers and youth leaders how to use the Rubik’s Cube as a memorization, sequencing, problem solving, and confidence-building tool. Furthermore, the cube provides a visual way to teach math disciplines like fractions, measurement, geometry, and algebra – and sense of accomplishment!

The program comes with a kit packing cubes, “solution guides”, DVD and CD, stickers, activity sheets and certificates.
