Stage 1 – Getting to know your Rubik’s cube

If you have been looking for a website that teaches you how to solve a 3×3 Rubik’s cube, then you’ve come to the right one!

In this tutorial I will be teaching you how to solve a 3×3 Rubik’s cube. There are 6 stages for how to solve a 3×3 Rubik’s cube, and I will be going through each one of these 6 stages with you. So, let’s just call this stage 1!

Stage 1: Getting to know your Rubik’s cube

In this stage, we will be learning how to understand your 3×3 Rubik’s cube better, by taking a look at the corner pieces, the edge pieces and the center pieces.

 

Corner pieces circled below

As you can see in the picture on the left, the pieces circled in red are the corner pieces of the Rubik’s cube and there are 8 of them.

 

 

Next, we will be looking at the edge pieces.

Edge pieces circled in the picture below

Once again, as you can see in the picture on the left, the edge pieces are the pieces in between the corner pieces and there are 12 of them.

 

And now, we will be looking at the center pieces.

center pieces circled below

Finally, as you can see in the picture on the left, the center pieces are the pieces of the Rubik’s cube circled in red. They are in the center and there are 6 of them. One way to know they are is to know that blue is opposite green, red is opposite orange and yellow is opposite white, and they don’t move.

 

And now we are going to learn the last thing that we need to know in stage 1: Algorithms

An algorithm for your Rubik’s cube is the way you turn your Rubik’s cube and in second I will show you all the algorithms.( See the algorithms down below )

 

              

Right            Right inverted                           Left                              Left inverted                         Back         Back inverted

 

               

Down                         Down inverted                       Front         Front inverted                              Up
