Join us for a truly amazing presentation of mental mathematical gymnastics that will seemingly turn math into magic. We watched as mathemagician and math whiz Arthur Benjamin “out-calculated” an electronic calculator and figured out the weekday of any date in history with lightning-fast speed. We discovered the fun side of math that’s sometimes easy to forget when doing your homework, and met a surprising young guest who just might be a worthy mathemagical opponent.

The Mathemagician event was followed by Mathemagician’s Apprentice, a workshop in which Benjamin divulged some of his amazing mental-math secrets. For ages 10 and up.
