# How To: Use Rubik's Cube notation

This video tutorial is for beginner puzzlers who are getting more advanced in their speedsolving of the Rubik's Cube. When solving the Rubiks Cube, there are these mathematical equations called algorithms, which I'm sure you already know. But wait... what do algorithms have to do with notation? Well, in an algorithm you have a sequence of letters that tell you which sides of the cube you want to turn. Each of the six sides of the Rubik's Cube are associated with a letter and a symbol that tell you which of the sides you want to turn and what direction you want to turn it. That's what notation is, that's why you need to know it. This video will tell you everything you need to know about using Rubik's Cube notation.
