"Connected Classrooms: Mathematical Magic with Cards" (Hangout is on April 8 but archived.) Mathematicians don't lie. But magicians have been known to tell a few fibs to spice up their shows. Then there are mathemagicians, who combine mathematical principles with magic in their performances! Imagine a card trick where two people pick random cards from a deck, add up the numbers on the cards, and tell the mathemagician the total obtained. The mathemagician immediately names the two cards, values and suits! In this hangout you'll learn how to baffle your friends and relatives with this original creation of mathemagician Colm Mulcahy.
