Anyone who has spent time trying to solve a Rubik's Cube knows it can be frustrating. (How quickly you can turn order into chaos, never to return to order....) But with a little help from the makers of the cube, you might learn to do it. And quickly impress your friends.

This website describes the importance of mathematics and many rewarding career opportunities available to students who study mathematics.
