The famous Rubik’s cube offers interesting opportunities to teach concepts applied in physics, chemistry and mathematics, to develop skills for problem solving. We developed this work using the Rubik’s cube in order to work with some concepts that are forgotten in the books of physics at basic education. Through a guide for teachers, we apply ou product in2nd and 3nd year high school classes in the Estate school Messias Pedreiro in Uberlândia – MG, showing among other things the statiscal nature of entropy, the second law of thermodynamics, Maxwell’s demon and the Max- Boltzmann distribution. To support this work we based on overview about the applied technique.
