Mathematics and magic may seem a strange combination, but many of the most powerful magical effects performed today have a mathematical basis. Math is also the secret behind the technologies we use, the products we buy and the jobs we do.
The Manual of Mathematical Magic is packed full of magical miracles to impress and entertain your friends. The secrets behind street magic, close-up and stage tricks are explained clearly with instructions and videos to help you perform them perfectly. Then you can learn about the math behind the trick and discover how that same mathematics is used to power our modern world and numerous careers.
“Our goal is to help more students engage with Mathematics. Magic tricks get the students excited and then we show them the mathematical principles that make the whole trick hang together. We also reveal how the same Mathematics underpins everything from medical scans to sending text messages.”
Talk about “hands on” math… this fascinating guide is a great learning (and fun) resource for students grade 6 and up.
