Twisted Mathematics: Rubik’s Cube
September 22nd, 2011
Tuesday, Sept. 27, 12:30pm – 1:20pm in Room 421 of Neville Hall.
Speaker: Kevin Roberge, Mathematics Instructor and Graduate Student of Physics.
Pizza will be served!

Rubik’s cube and the many other twisty puzzles that have been created embody a beautiful part of mathematics known as group theory. These hand held puzzles invite problem solvers from all walks of life to enjoy the clearly stated challenge of each puzzle: return to a state of order.
In this discussion Kevin Roberge, a long time fan of twisty puzzles, will introduce some history, mathematics and future of Rubik’s cube and twisty puzzles. He’ll have his modest collection with him and will discuss some of the challenges in solving the puzzles and in creating new puzzles.
