Mrs. Smith from Everton AR is requesting Educational Kits & Games through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Can You Solve It in 1:10:28?

Help me give my students Rubik's Cube Games in order to help them learn problem-solving strategies, develop social skills, and improve their mathematical concepts.

My Students

We are a Title I school with above 75% poverty level. My students have very few choices for extracurricular activities and many parents struggle to make ends meet. I would like to incorporate strategies and algorithms through a curriculum by Rubik's. Because we are in a very rural and isolated geographical location, our students received very little opportunity for cultural exchange.

Rubik's can break that geographical barrier as well as physical disability barriers through social engagements.

For example, a wheelchair-bound student can learn algorithms and strategies to solve a Rubik's cube. There are Rubik's competitions which will give students the opportunity to engage other students and bring various areas of diversity.

Thank you for contributing to this sport which levels the playing field for students who can not participate in other sports. Rubik's promotes problem-solving and improves math skills while promoting teamwork and many other skills.

My Project

My students will research solutions and memorize algorithms needed to solve a Rubik's Cube. They will develop a stronger concept of math skills and social skills while doing Rubik's Cube Game. They will continue to improve this newly acquired skillset until they beat the fastest solution times in their class.

The twelve fastest students will compete against other schools in an Arkansas based Math Carnival.

Without a Rubik's Cube in hand, my students will only be able to learn the concepts.

With a Rubik's Cube in hand, my students will develop the speed and skill required in a competition to be successful.
