Hello there, everyone!
Today I want to take you through a well-known math problem which I enjoy calling “The Painted Cube Conundrum,” because it sounds like a Sherlock Holmes case. Also, who’s excited for Sherlock Season 4 in 2017? I know I am!
The problem usually goes something like this:
A 4x4x4 cube is painted red over its entire surface, and then cut into 1x1x1 blocks. How many of the 1x1x1 blocks will have 2 faces painted?
Welcome to The Maths Project, my new math education blog!
The aim of this project is to provide math students and enthusiasts with a place to learn more about this wonderful (to some) subject.
My aim is to share some of my love for this subject with you, and I am a firm believer that anyone can be good at math, as long as there is proper guidance.
So I hope you join me on this journey, and I will be offering an online class soon in Fundamental Maths, so look out for that.
So for now, get ready to start an amazing journey, and don’t forget to subscribe!
