Not only that, math magic creates a new context for algebraic reasoning as students go beyond "What's the answer? One type of number trick involves adding, subtracting, multiplying, or dividing by a starting number and subtracting the original number in such a way that each participant always arrives at a certain number:. Think of a number between 1 and Double your number. Add

Pick up the key ideas in the book with this quick summary. The mere mention of a magician typically brings up images of someone with a top hat saying abracadabra and conjuring white bunnies, doves and handkerchiefs from thin air with the simple touch of a wand. But without the props and the grand spectacle, the magic, too, would be gone. Unless, of course, you enter the world of math! These book summary explore the beautiful magic of mathematical patterns, showing you how you can use some of these patterns to perform impressive tricks and do seemingly impossible calculations in your head. Mathematics is more than just tedious textbooks and laborious calculations; it is a whole world of patterns that are not only magical , they can be really useful too. Consider the so-called numerical patterns — patterns made of numbers — and their surprising and beautiful properties.

This is one of the better tricks of its kind, because the effect of reversing the digits isn't obvious to most people at first The middle digit is always 9, while the first and last digits of any such multiple add up to 9. Thus, a new table must be provided each time. Several online implementation do this quite effectively, with nice graphics. Using a pocket calculator, another spectator multiplies that number by some secret 3-digit number which he chooses freely and keeps for himself. The result is a 6 or 7-digit number. The spectator withholds one of those digits and reveals all the others in a random order.

Mathematical magic is not-let us face it- the sort of magic with which one can hold spellbound an audience of nonmathematically minded people. Its tricks take too.

Magical Mathematics reveals the secrets of fun-to-perform card tricks—and the profound mathematical ideas behind them—that will astound even the most accomplished magician. Persi Diaconis and Ron Graham provide easy, step-by-step instructions for each trick, explaining how to set up the effect and offering tips on what to say and do while performing it. Each card trick introduces a new mathematical idea, and varying the tricks in turn takes readers to the very threshold of today's mathematical knowledge. Diaconis and Graham tell the stories—and reveal the best tricks—of the eccentric and brilliant inventors of mathematical magic. The book exposes old gambling secrets through the mathematics of shuffling cards, explains the classic street-gambling scam of three-card Monte, traces the history of mathematical magic back to the oldest mathematical trick—and much more.

By Martin Gardner. Like many another hybrid subject matter, mathematical magic is often viewed with a double disdain. Mathematicians are inclined to regard it as trivial play, magicians to dismiss it as dull magic.

#### Magical mathematics : the mathematical ideas that animate great magic tricks

Сьюзан смутилась. - Хорошо, а что, если… кошка. - Жила! - не задумываясь выпалил Беккер. - Жила. - Да. Кошачья жила. Из нее делают струны для ракеток.

Наклонился и осмотрел пальцы левой руки. Лейтенант следил за его взглядом. - Ужасное уродство, правда. Но не искалеченная рука привлекла внимание Беккера. Он увидел кое-что другое.

Я хотел внести исправления тихо и спокойно. Изначальный план состоял в том, чтобы сделать это незаметно и позволить Танкадо продать пароль. Сьюзан должна была признать, что прозвучало это довольно убедительно. У Танкадо не было причин подозревать, что код в Интернете не является оригиналом. Никто не имел к нему доступа, кроме него самого и Северной Дакоты. Если бы Танкадо не вернулся к анализу программы после ее выпуска свет, он ничего бы не узнал про этот черный ход.

- Он засмеялся.  - Попрыгунчик - древняя история.

Глаза ее не отрывались от экрана. Мозг лихорадочно искал какое-то другое объяснение, но не находил. Перед ее глазами было внезапно появившееся доказательство: Танкадо использовал меняющуюся последовательность для создания функции меняющегося открытого текста, а Хейл вступил с ним в сговор с целью свалить Агентство национальной безопасности.

Очень умно, Грег. - Там подают отличный карпаччо.  - Хейл улыбнулся.

Она представила себе эти буквы и начала менять их местами.
