In response to educators' requests for resources that incorporate the Rubik's Cube into the classroom, teachers and educational consultants have written, tested and aligned math lessons with national standards, states' frameworks and 21st Century Skills. Most of the lessons include a teacher's instruction page, homework sheet and answer key.

Instructional Curriculum

A comprehensive standards-based 8 lesson curriculum that enables you to teach your students to solve the Rubik's Cube. Each lesson is designed to be flexible and can be presented in whole or segmented sections.

The curriculum is a companion to the You Can Do the Rubik's Cube Solution Guide and is a available as a CD sold with the Education kit or as a printed 10 booklet, 4/c set.

The Secondary Curriculum has been designed as a project based learning tool to develop a better understanding of mathematics practices through Algebraic and Geometric relationships to the Rubik's Cube. Each subject is addressed in the form of a student workbook and can be utilized as self-paced, group work and/or independent learning. The workbooks incorporate the Common Core Modeling Cycle to link classroom mathematics to everyday life, work and decision-making.

Odyssey of the Mind is proud to be working in conjunction with the You CAN Do The Rubik's Cube Program to help students across the U.S. and beyond realize their potential while emphasizing teamwork, "outside of the box" thinking, and creativity.
