  1. SOLVING SLIDER PUZZLES


    In order to better show how it works, a numerical, instead of pictorial slider puzzle was used. Also, a 4x4 puzzle was used, but using these instructions, any sized slider puzzle can be solved.

    1.  Starting on the top row put all of the pieces in place except the last one.

    2.  Position the last piece of the top row, under where it is supposed to go and put the empty space below that.

    3.  Slide the pieces around using the following sequence:

    DOWN
    DOWN
    RIGHT
    UP
    LEFT
    UP
    RIGHT
    DOWN
    DOWN
    LEFT
    UP

    When the sequence is complete, the piece will be in the correct place.

    4.  Repeat the above steps for the remaining rows until you get to the last two.

    5.  When putting the last two rows in place, there are two ways to approach this part of the puzzle. The first is to mentally rotate the puzzle to the right and start back at Step 1 and progress down the rows.

    6.  The second way is a little less mentally challenging, but will have a different sequence.

    7.  Slide the lower left piece into place, then slide the piece that would go above it one position to the right and put the empty space to the right of that.

    8.  Slide the pieces around using the following sequence:

    RIGHT
    RIGHT
    UP
    LEFT
    DOWN
    LEFT
    UP
    RIGHT
    RIGHT
    DOWN
    LEFT

    When the sequence is complete, the piece will be in the correct place.

    9.  Repeat the above steps until there’s only the last three pieces.

    10.  To get the last three pieces into place, simply rotate them around; they will always be in the correct order.
