I can’t honestly say that I’ve ever completed, or even got very far, with a Rubik’s Cube. (Incidentally, nor have I been to one of those parties either where you where different coloured items of clothing and are supposed to come home wearing all one colour…) But I can imagine the satisfaction of doing one, after all I love a bit of organisation. Having finished editing the final assessed essay of my undergraduate degree today, I spent a much-needed hour sorting out the piles of papers and notes around the room, printing off others, and neatly filing them ready for the revision to start. The serious bit. Of course, it’s far too late to start anything too ambitious today. So instead I’ll tell you about the one type of Rubik’s cube that I have completed!
It started with this TV show… the Big Bang Theory. I noticed in a couple of episodes, tucked into a corner, was a fantastic tissue-box cover in the form of a Rubik’s cube! So I decided to make one. For Seb of course. Being a mathematician I frequently impose these sorts of things on him. He’s used to it.
