Description

Did you get a Rubik's cube but it is on the shelf since you first shuffled and then never managed to solve it? Dust it off, I'll show you how to solve it.

I learned to solve the cube when I was 8, though my sister decided not to teach me the very last step and I had to figure that out myself. Since then, I taught a dozen of my friends how to solve the Rubik's cube with the very same method, and we challenge each other to see who's the quickest. My best time is 1 minute 23 seconds. Are you up to the challenge, too?

I'm not good at 3D modelling or high-tech video editing, but I learned to create good quality videos and added what I lacked from Rubik's cube tutorials: just a few easy steps that would be understandable even for an 8-year old and a bit of personal touch. So let me sit down next to you and show you how to solve the cube with my 6 super-easy steps. You'll see the videos as if the cube was in your hand, I'll point out the shortcuts, and mistakes, and well... I'll help you practice as long as you master the Rubik's cube!

I also added some extra content about how to choose the proper cube if you don't have one, do fun patterns once the cube is solved, do some basic maintenance (please-please, do not remove the stickers, ever), and what to do if you're facing a cube with nothing but mirror-like sides...

So are you up to my challenge?

Who is the target audience?
  • Anyone with a shuffled Rubik's cube.

6 easy steps to solve Rubik's cube
7 Lectures 48:38

White cross

As the very first step, we'll finish the cross on the white side. Maybe you have already figured it out how to do the white side, in this case jump to step 3. Let's get started!

Preview 05:01

White side

After the cross is ready, the corners of the white side will go to their places. The matching side colors of the white side will form a small letter T.

Side pieces

With this step, you'll be able to have the white side and the two rows below it ready.

Step 3: Side pieces

Yellow cross

Now we'll turn the cube upside down and work on the yellow side from here on. Let's start with the yellow cross, where you'll see 3 versions of what you might see, and you'll have to do the steps 1, 2 or 3 times.

Step 4 The yellow cross

Yellow cross matching sides

This is my favourite step, if you were good at kindergarden rhymes, you'll learn it in no time and have the sides of the yellow cross match the side centre colors.

Step 5: The yellow cross matching the sides
04:54

One yellow corner

In steps 6a and 6b we'll use the same steps, but I divided it to 2 videos to see how to get the last corners right one by one.

We're almost done!

Step 6a: One yellow corner
03:32

All sides ready

In steps 6a and 6b we'll use the same steps, but I divided it to 2 videos to see how to get the last corners right one by one.

Here we'll finish the cube!

Now that your cube is solved, let's do some tricks with it! Fun patterns (and how to restore them of course..).

Extra tricks with your finished cube
04:07

Sometimes new cubes tend to be too hard to shuffle or its rows too hard to turn. We'll fix this, and also, I'll show you how a cube looks when taken apart to pieces and how to build it again.

Cube maintenance
07:05

Once you know how to solve the standard 3x3x3 color cube, you'll be able to solve some extra cubes as well, like these mirror cubes.

Some weird cubes...

Traveler and online business owner

I quit my corporate life a year ago to run online businesses and it definitely proved to be a good decision. With opportunities like Udemy I can work now from any spot of the globe, so I'm travelling the world right now which has been my dream ever since I started university.

Originally my field of expertise is social marketing and commerce, but I see that becoming a Jack of all trades is what takes me forward in this online world, so I'm continuously picking up new skills like web design, photography or even open water diving or archery...

I am happy to share all the knowledge I collected throughout all my 28 years, and I'm happy to learn from inspiring people that I met here on Udemy.
