Burr Puzzle Project: Part 1: A burr or bur (from the old English byrst – bristle) according to Webster’s 9 th Collegiate Dictionary is defined as (among other things) a rough or prickly envelope of a fruit, a plant that bears burs, or something that sticks or clings. The Burr Puzzle is so named because the completed puzzle much resembles the burs one finds stuck to socks and the dog’s tail after an autumn walk in the meadow. The puzzle has been around for many years in various forms, usually constructed of wood. It consists of a number of rectangular blocks (six in our case) notched such that they fit together to create the solid burr shape. The problem here is that we built a plastic version of the puzzle to demonstrate our rapid prototype machine and gave an unfinished puzzle to a friend of the University, without directions on how to put it together. We need a solution set to go with the puzzle. Your job is to create an instruction set for completing the puzzle that can be sent to him, and later packaged with puzzles we will be manufacturing for others.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
