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.

    It’s a sad commentary on the state of America that what was once a puzzle meant for people to figure out on their own is now considered so hard they now include the solution, intend to have that spoonfed, and still consider it such a great achievement they include certificates?

    This seems very anti-maker to me. Rather than learn to solve something on your own you look up the canned answer? And you think that’s a good thing?

    Why not sell jigsaw puzzles pre-solved and mounted to hang on your wall and tell everyone you did it? Why should you ever think for yourself, just let someone else do it for you.

    …also this just strikes me as a big ad. And quite un-makeblog.
