The Towers of Hanoi puzzle was published in 1883 by the French
mathematician Edouard Lucas, under the pen-name, N. Lucas de Siam.
The objective of the game is to move all the disks onto the further pole.
There are only two ruls to consider:
1.You can only move one disk at a time.
2.You must follow size order : a bigger disk can not go on a smaller disk.
This puzzle is well known to Computer science students,
as it appears virtually in any introductory text on data structures or algorithms.

link to the game:
You are currently on your 14th move in the game. You are playing
with 5 discks.(picture 1).
In according to what you have learned, in order to complete the
game in a minimum moves, what would be your next move?
For a hint, watch the video below (video 1):

Great answer!!! Very good.
It seems, that you understand the material.
The smallest disk moves in a cycle, As you have already learned:
Anti clockwise if N is odd
Clockwise if N is even
If we will move it to the A pole it will not be in minimum moves.
As you have learned You must follow size order :
a bigger disk can not go on a smaller disk.
You will not complete the task with the minimum moves.
In your question you gave a brief introduction to The Towers of Hanoi puzzle; The first line about the origins might be unnecessary but adds a bit of context.
The subject is interesting and I like the way you’ve chosen to demonstrate it.
In my opinion, the fact that minimum moves are required wasn't emphasized enough. Also, the text has some spelling and grammar mistakes.
The video is necessary to solve the question as was required.
Your explanation was clear and simple in the way that every person can understand. You've illustrated the problem well using the animation.
It would have been better to use a special program to capture the screen instead of filming it.
The observations are helpful and to the point. The only thing missing is writing down what N stands for, even though you've said it out loud, it should also be written.
After listing the observations you've proceeded with an example, while reminding of the observations learned. It was good, although it might be more constructive to show the example alongside with the observations.
The question is well formulated and appropriate to the subject, implementing the observations shown in the video and directly connecting the video to the question.
Your responses to the distractions were good, each one included a hint as to why the answer was wrong, reminding the student of the observations that were learned from the video. It helps encourage and guide the student toward try and solving the question in a different way.
Well done!From your viedo,I have known the Hanoi clearly and how to play the game,thank you~
But when I watched your viedo,I thought it was a little boring and I only learned how to paly the game but not the exact principle of Hanoi.
I think maybe we can use the myth to add more information.So the video will be more interesting and it can introduce the principle.
I think you can find more information by using google.In my opinion,I have found a myth about the life of universe,somebody has said that when people have carried the 64 disk,the universe will vanish.Maybe you can illustrate the myth and explain the process of caculation,I think it can help your video be better~
