**About this book :- **
**Math and Magic ** written by
** Arthur T Benjamin **

On the surface, mathematics and magic seem to be very different, yet they have an awful lot in common. In both subjects, you have a problem to solve: What is the value of x? How did the magician find my card? Both seem mysterious at first, but with a little bit of practice (okay, sometimes a lot of practice), you can become quite good at both. And once mastered, both subjects are a great deal of fun. Most people enjoy magic tricks, especially if they are performed well, and one of the goals of this course is that by the end of it you’ll enjoy math more, too—or at least see how it can be applied in magical ways.

By the time you finish this course, you’ll learn to dazzle your friends and family with some impressive feats designed to make you look like a card shark, a psychic, a genius, or just a very talented magician.

None of the magic will involve any difficult sleight of hand. If there is any physical dexterity required, it’ll be so easy to learn that you should be able learn it in just a few minutes.

All the magic tricks in this course use ordinary, everyday objects, such as cards, coins, and paper. Some of the tricks use numbers visibly, but with some of them, the math is pretty well hidden.

**About Author :- **

Author ** Arthur T. Benjamin ** is a Professor of Mathematics at Harvey Mudd College. He graduated from Carnegie Mellon University in 1983, where he earned a B.S. in Applied Mathematics with university honors. He received his Ph.D. in Mathematical Sciences in 1989 from Johns Hopkins University, where he was supported by a National Science Foundation graduate fellowship and a Rufus P. Isaacs fellowship. Since 1989, Dr. Benjamin has been a faculty member of the Mathematics Department at Harvey Mudd College, where he has served as department chair. He has spent sabbatical visits at Caltech, Brandeis University, and University of New South Wales in Sydney, Australia.

1999, Professor Benjamin received the Southern California Section of the Mathematical Association of America (MAA) Award for Distinguished College or University Teaching of Mathematics, and in 2000, he received the MAA Deborah and Franklin Tepper Haimo National Award for Distinguished College or University Teaching of Mathematics. He was named the 2006í2008 George Pólya Lecturer by the MAA.

Dr. Benjamin’s research interests include combinatorics, game theory, and number theory, with a special fondness for Fibonacci numbers. Many of these ideas appear in his book (co-authored with Jennifer Quinn), Proofs That Really Count: The Art of Combinatorial Proof published by the MAA. In 2006, that book received the Beckenbach Book Prize by the MAA. Professors Benjamin and Quinn are the co-editors of Math Horizons magazine, published by MAA and enjoyed by more than 20,000 readers, mostly undergraduate math students and their teachers.

Professor Benjamin is also a professional magician. He has given more than 1,000 “mathemagics” shows to audiences all over the world (from primary schools to scienti¿ c conferences), where he demonstrates and explains his calculating talents. His techniques are explained in his book Secrets of Mental Math: The Mathemagician’s Guide to Lightning Calculation and Amazing Math Tricks. Proli¿ c math and science writer Martin Gardner calls it “the clearest, simplest, most entertaining, and best book yet on the art of calculating in your head.” An avid games player, Dr. Benjamin was winner of the American Backgammon Tour in 1997.

Professor Benjamin has appeared on dozens of television and radio programs, including the Today Show, CNN, and National Public Radio. He has been featured in Scienti¿ c American, Omni, Discover, People, Esquire, The New York Times, the Los Angeles Times, and Reader’s Digest. In 2005, Reader’s Digest called him “America’s Best Math Whiz.”
