I have decided to figure out how to solve a Rubix Cube for my 10 hour project. As a kid, I always thought solving a rubix cube was a very challenging thing to accomplish. When I would see people achieve solving a rubix cube, I thought they were insanely smart and could do anything. I wanted to be like them and figure out what I thought was so hard. As I grew older, I lost interest with solving it as I did not have much free time to learn something so challenging. Now that we have a 10 hour project and time to learn anything we want, I want to fulfill this goal of figuring out how to solve a rubix cube.
There will be various steps I will go through to accomplish this task. The first one is buying a new, average sized rubix cube. Although I have some old ones, the colored stickers are ripped up and some are broken. I want to start fresh with a new one. I will probably go to Target or Kroger and see if ruby cubes are available there. Once I buy one I will start my ten hour project. I have decided to learn how to solve a rube cube by watching videos on youtube. I have come to realize that this is the best way for me to learn when I do not have an in person teacher for a certain subject.
Videos have helped me in various subjects because they explain the content really well and slowly. Also, I can pause and go back at any time I want, which is helpful if I did not understand something. My plan is to find a long ruby cube solving video online where the person explains what to do step by step. As I watch the video and learn the steps, I will have the rubix cube in front of me doing the same step, and writing down the step in my notebook. I will watch the step in the video first, then pause it. I will do the same step on my own ruby cube and write down the step in my notebook. I will continue this until all the steps in the video are done, my rubix cube is solved, and I have written everything down on my notebook.
Then, I will mix up the rubix cube again and resolve it following the steps I wrote down on my notebook so I have a good idea on how to do it without watching someone else do it at the same time. After that I will mix up the rubix cube again and then resolve it because I want to know how to do it without having steps to follow or any help. This will be a 10 hour project because I will be taking breaks between learning and following how to solve the rubix cube. I know it is good to take breaks while studying so I know it will be helpful if I take breaks between learning all of this because it will make me more focused and make me work more efficiently.
