Trick 3: Maths Swami Knows Your Age and Foot Size

July 9, 2018

Maths Swami 1: A Magic No.

Maths Swami 2: I Know Your Birthday

Requirements: Calculator and spooky demeanor

Imagine your birthday was 24 September 1973.

Written as an American date (not UK or Australia) this would be:

9-24-73.

Give the calculator to a student:

Take birthday month and add 18:

9 + 18 = 27

x 25

27 x 25 = 675

– 333

675 – 333 = 342

x 8

342 x 8 = 2736

– 554

2736 – 554 = 2182

Divide by 2

2182/2 = 1091

Add day of birthday date

1091 + 24 = 1115

x5

1115 x 5 = 5575

+ 692

5575 + 692 = 6267

x 20

6267 x 20 = 125340

Add the last two digits only of your birth year

125340 + 73 = 125413

– 32940

125413 – 32940 = 92473 = 9-24-73

Yes! Yes!

Hint: It probably would be easier to ask them for their birthday. Ha! But Maths Swami’s are mysterious beings.

Trick 5: Cool Math Trick

June 4, 2018

Requirements: A Pack of Cards and a willing assistant.

Take 10 cards from pack including the 10 Diamonds.

Lay out card in 3 columns in a pattern of 4 down, 2 down, 4 down.

Put the 10 Diamonds at the top of the  left hand column.

Group students around. You turn your head away and ask a student to point to a card.

You carry on, think allowed and then ask your assistant to point to cards asking:

Is it this one?

No.

Is it this one?

No.…………………………………………………………………………………

When your assistant points to the 10 Diamonds he will show you the position using the diamonds. The cards are laid out on the table in the pattern of the diamonds on the 10 Diamonds.

Whenever your assistant asks is it this one? You will know.

Awesome Math Mural

May 28, 2018

This math mural is on a high school wall, somewhere. It works because it has a street art vibe. Not a grade school math book look. That’s cool. 

Why not do something like this for your school.

Trick 6: Freaky Math Medium

May 27, 2018

Write the word carrot inside your math text book. Do not show students.

When Mathspig was a mathspiglet we used to play this trick. It doesn’t work on everyone, but it works  often enough.

Ask a student to say 15 times 15 fifteen times.

Then ask them to name a vegetable. Students say carrot 90% (I’m guessing) of the time.

To make this trick more dramatic send 10 students out of the class before you begin and tell the other half what you are about to do. Students return one at a time. How often do they say ‘carrot’? What % of students say carrot?
