Learn to Solve the Rubik's Cube
Rubik'S Cube 3 by 3
Very Easy Solution to Solve the 3 by 3 Rubik's Cube.
This method was tried out in a school with Primary children and
they were able to solve it easily
Understand the Cube
The Rubik’s cube usually has six colours.
White - opposite -Yellow
Red - opposite - Orange
Blue - opposite - Green
The centre pieces are fixed. They don't move.
Edge pieces have two colours.
Corner pieces have three colours.
You can move these pieces and match them with the centre.
There are three layers: the first layer, the second layer and the third layer.
We solve one layer at a time and complete the cube.
Start with a Cross
Take the yellow centre on top.
Put four white edge pieces around the yellow.
Match with centre and take it down to the white side.
Repeat 4 times and get a cross on the white side.
Now if we put four corner pieces correctly, the first layer will be done.
Find the corner pieces.
Place in position - Down - Match - Up
(Right or Left)
Repeat 4 times complete the first layer.
We have to place four pieces to complete the second layer.
These are the four pieces we need to change.
The same set of steps are repeated four times to do this.
So we need to learn only one set of steps to complete the second layer.
Identify the piece.
Match - Save - Down - Back - Up - Save Again - Down - Match - Up
Repeat this four times. Second layer will be complete.
For the third layer whatever changes we make should not mess up the other two layers.
So whatever move we make we also make the opposite move to get back what we mess up.
For example, I move it like this and the first layer is messed up. But I move it in the opposite direction to keep the first layer intact.
We need to do 4 things to complete the final layer.
Make a Cross
