You might like to try the Magic Squares 4x4 problem before trying this.


Can you place a $4$ by $4$ magic square on each face of a cube so that along each edge of the cube the numbers match?

You can find out more about constructing magic squares and finding different transformations (re-arrangements that preserve the magic properties) in these two articles Magic Squares and Magic Squares II .
