DIRECTIONS FOR SOLVING THE 5x5x5 (Professor) CUBE

These instructions can be used to solve a 5x5x5 cube, also known as the professor cube due to its difficulty. These directions are a graphical version of those given by Jacob Davenport. I would appreciate any and all feedback or questions about the instructions; please see the end of this page for the e-mail address.

As a preview, the steps are: 1. Solve the top points and crosses 2. Solve the bottom points 3. Solve the remaining points (on the sides) 4. Complete the top and bottom crosses 5. Complete the remaining crosses (on the sides) 6. Associate wings with their appropriate edge pieces 7. Solve the 3x3x3

KEY TO SYMBOLS FOR THE MOVES

The figures in this document represent a sample cube. Although the colors on your personal cube may be different than the figures, I feel that the colored figures will still be helpful in solving the cube. I would suggest matching as many colors on your cube as possible to the figures, then making mental notes about which colors correspond between your cube The diagrams show all six sides of the cube by pretending that mirrors are being held up so that you may see the "hidden" sides.
