Cool Math Tricks

So are you not only ready to see, but also perform some really cool math tricks

You'll really enjoy and be amazed by this math mind reading trick.

The magician asks for a volunteer to call out a four digit number that he then writes down on the whiteboard.

And after doing this a second time, the math magician writes down a secret number on a piece of paper that he doesn't show the audience. The magician will also write a a couple of his own random four digit numbers under the four digit numbers that he's already written.

When it's all said and done, there will be a total of five four-digit numbers written in a column. The magician then asks some one from the audience to add the five numbers together.

And guess what the total is..... That's right. The secret number that the magician wrote down near the beginning of the trick!

Just watch it performed in the video below, and then give it a try.

Here's another cool math trick you might like that also has a mind-reading effect. In this trick, the math magician will be able to predict the sum of four numbers that are randomly picked by a spectator even before the trick begins - how cool is that!

The cool part is that math is the driving force behind these tricks. So, this could help kids see that math is pretty cool. Here's another cool math magic trick that uses dice.
