Mathematics and music are closely related. And as teacher Michael Staff points out, their common ground could be partially connected with a Rubik’s Cube puzzle.
In a recent TedEd video lesson, “How to play a Rubik’s Cube like a piano,” Staff explains:
“If you were to cover your entire Rubik’s Cube with notes, such that every face of the solved cube is a harmonious chord, you could express the solution as a chord progression that gradually moves from discordance to harmony, and play the Rubik’s cube.”
