Amaze your friends and stump your parents with number magic tricks! You don't have to own a magician's equipment to perfect each feat - you just practice it a few times. Some tricks turn you into a mind reader, such as the one where somebody rolls some dice, stacks them, and you tell everyone the total numbers on the hidden dots. Or, reveal the number a friend has chosen from a list on a piece of paper. Or, guess a word someone has chosen from a dictionary. Then try some new card tricks, and finish by drawing a line on a piece of paper with only one side, and a magic origami trick of turning an 8. From the author of Mathemagic and Mathamusements. * Fun and learning combined - kids will love doing the 'magic' while they are really learning practical mathematics and the science of numbers. * User friendly! Children can open the book at any point, pick up on one of the tricks and get started. * Clear and easy instructions -all the tricks and the principles explained. * Hardback published April 2002: ISBN 0-8069-2399-7
