Reading Your Mind!

Mental Math


Do you believe in Magic?
How about Mind Reading?

In this episode, Ben will become a “mentalist” and will amaze your students with a Mental-Math-Mind-Reading trick!

First, he will ask his guest, Curley, to choose a secret number between 1 and 15, and write it down without showing it.

Then Ben will present the chart with mixed numbers on it. After Curley points to the column/s where his secret number is found, Ben (without seeing the numbers on the chart) announces the secret number!

Ben will explain the Math-Mind-Reading trick so your students can entertain and amaze their family and friends…a perfect way to get young students interested in Math…and Magic Numbers!
