Can Maths be fun? Yes definitely when it involves any of the Rubik's Cube books, of which this is one. Go off on an adventure with you, the reader, choosing the route, throughout outer-space and solve the series of shape, geometry and pattern puzzles to prove you are the best Rubik's Cuber in the world!
The Rubik's Quest series Cube Countdown is part of a series of four exciting books. Each one takes the reader on an engaging adventure into the science and maths behind the Rubik's Cube which in 2014 celebrates its 40th birthday. Readers must use their problem-solving skills in a twisting-turning world of toys and puzzles.
Cube Countdown by Dan Green
Cube Countdown looks at the maths and science of puzzles. Readers are put to the test in a series of shape, geometry and pattern puzzles that will take them into outer space:
BRING! BRING! You wake with a start and answer the phone.
“Cube Corps HQ here. There’s an emergency at the Command Centre. You and Superflip are required immediately. The Rubik’s Core has been stolen.”
So much for your day off. You grab Superflip’s collar, put on your uniform and head to the Command Centre on page 8.
The Magic Cube was invented in 1974 by Hungarian architecture professor Erno Rubik.
Can you complete the entire Rubik's Quest?
