Rubik's Cube Website Offers Free Math and STEM Lessons With a Twist

Ever think of using the Rubik's cube in the classroom? 

More and more schools across the country are taking the tactile geometrical game into their classroom to implement geometry, algebra, general math lessons, and more. Seven Towns, who owns the cube, created a website, called You Can do the Rubik's Cube. The site offers teachers free lesson plans aligned to Common Core standards and other educational standards.

"Holding the Rubik's Cube, twisting and turning the parts, can help children of all ages grasp important math concepts including area, perimeter, volume, angles, algorithms and enumeration, among many other geometry and algebraic topics," the website said. "Some teachers are even using the Rubik's Cube to teach life lessons and 21st century skills such as focus, following directions, memorization, sequencing, problem solving, critical thinking, and perseverance."
