Professor supports students in solving the Rubik's cube without telling them what to do.
This video was taken in a mathematics for liberal arts class with 30 students. It met two times a week for 75 minutes each.
As part of class participation, students are expected to share their mathematical ideas with other members of their group, to listen carefully to what is being shared, to raise questions if anything is unclear, to agree or disagree (and state reasons), and to keep a record of their findings (and questions) that can be presented to the who class. In this short clip, we witness two students in a discussion about counting the number of ways in which we could relabel a particular 7x7 Latin square. This is about two weeks into the semester.
