Instructions and Help about How Form 8815 Completion

Music hi everyone my name is Phil today I'll be teaching you how to solve the 3x3 Rubik's cube using an easy method this method is easy because it's broken down into small steps each with an obvious and well-defined goal the method is designed to minimize intense thinking and memorization in fact the only thing you really have to memorize is one form of sequence in several applications of it after watching this video you will be able to solve the cube and also be able to teach others as well before we go into the method of solving the cube let's explore some basics and background info this is a 3x3 cube for the purpose of our tutorial there are two ways to visualize this puzzle first is side by side this cube has six sides each with a different color the Centers of these sides act as swivels and they stay put relative to each other for example no matter how much I mix up the cube the yellow side will always be opposite of the white side secondly you can think of the Cubist layers you can think of layers like stories in a building each layer sits on top of one another except for of course the bottom layer here the terms we will use to describe the layers goes as follows the first layer is on the bottom and the last layer is on the top the middle one is what we call the second layer the basis for our solving method is to visualize the cube as a puzzlement with three layers now let's take the cube apart and check out the components of the puzzle you'll notice that there are three different types of pieces on the cube the first type of piece is called the center piece each center piece holds one sticker there are six centers in total because the center's don't move relative to each other the color of the center will ultimately decide the color of each face for example if the side has a red center the entire side should be red when the cube is solved the second type of piece is an edge which holds two stickers an edge is a type of piece that fits in between two centers for example this blue and red edge fits between the blue and red centers the third type of piece is a corner which has three stickers this corner is red white and blue and fits between the red white and blue Center pieces each piece is unique on the cube there will only be one white Center one green orange edge and one red right and blue corner along these lines there will be certain pieces that do not exist for example there will never be a green blue edge as the center pieces are opposite that's about it for background information now let's talk about how the cube moves each side can be rotated clockwise or counter clockwise you can make a single or even a double turn these moves on a cube can be denoted with cube notation which begins with associating each side of the cube with a letter the letters we use here are are L u DF and B our stands for write L stands for left you for up D for down F for front and B for back in this tutorial we'll only be using our L U and F a plain letter means a clockwise turn of that face with respect to that face as if you were looking directly at it for example a you would instruct us to turn the upper side clockwise once a letter followed by a prime symbol means a counterclockwise turn so a u prime would instruct us to turn the upper side counterclockwise once if you did a u and then a u Prime the cube would return to its original state because the U Prime undoes the u double turns are notated with a 2 following the letter so an R 2 denotes a double turn on the right face and doing another R 2 returns the cube towards original state direction does not matter so much here as turning aside clockwise twice is the same as turning it counterclockwise twice let's try a notation exercise for this exercise try doing the following moves are you r prime u prime in plain English this string of moves instructs us to move the right face once clockwise then move the upper face once clockwise after that move the right face once counterclockwise to finish move the upper face once counterclockwise if you did this correctly in a solved cube two-thirds of your top face should still be the same color repeating the string of moves five more times six times in total returns the cube to its original state there are a lot more types of turns and notations but the ones mentioned in this section of the vid are the ones that will be used to teach the method at this point we know how the puzzle works its basic rules and how to turn now let's take a look at the method and then apply our knowledge to solve the cube for simplicity we will break this step down into two separate sub steps the first one is called Daisy and the second one finishes up the cross for good we call the first step Daisy because daisies have yellow centers and white petals the goal of this step is to gather edges with white stickers around the yellow Center for our purposes the edges with white stickers will be called the white edges this should take only one two three moves for each sticker and it is completely intuitive we feel the best way to teach this is by example so here's an example of how to solve the Daisy so to make things easier and
