Shared publicly -Meet mathemagicians Arthur Benjamin and Ethan Brown. Dr. Benjamin is a professor of mathematics at Harvey Mudd College and Ethan Brown is a high school student at Phillips Andover Academy. Both are also professional magicians and combine their talents to make math magical and fun for all audiences. Learn to mentally square and multiply numbers in your head instantly, create mind-bending magic squares, and other dazzling feats of mind.

Teachers, this will be an interactive magic show where we'll ask students to provide numbers and check our magicians math! Please make sure your class is equipped with:

-calculators

--8.5x11(minimum) printed signs of the following numbers: the digits 1-20, 10 copies of each of the following: 2 digit, 3 digit, and 4 digit numbers

This presentation is part of series of Google Connected Classrooms to celebrate Mathematics Awareness Month. Schedule and details here: http://bit.ly/1qqXqxg

Arthur Benjamin is also a professional magician, and frequently performs at the Magic Castle in Hollywood. He is the author of several books, and four DVD courses from The Great Courses series, including "The Joy of Mathematics", "The Mathematics of Games and Puzzles", and "The Secrets of Mental Math". He has demonstrated and explained his calculating talents to audiences all over the world and has appeared on numerous television and radio programs, including

**Ethan Brown**is a ninth grader at Phillips Academy Andover, and is also known as a "Mathemagician." He has performed his mental math stage show at various conferences in New York City, Chicago, Atlanta, St. Louis, Boston, Las Vegas, and New Delhi, as well as schools and libraries across the east coast. He was featured on April 1st of Math Awareness Month for his magic square, a bit that he invented himself and uses as the grand finale of most of his shows.**Arthur Benjamin**grew up in Cleveland, Ohio, and earned his B.S. at Carnegie Mellon University in 1983 and his PhD in Mathematical Sciences at Johns Hopkins University in 1989. Since then he has been a Professor of Mathematics at Harvey Mudd College, in Claremont, California, where he has served as department chair, and co-Editor of*Math Horizons*magazine, published by the Mathematical Association of America (MAA). In 2000, the MAA awarded him the Haimo Prize for Distinguished University Teaching. In 1997, he applied his mathematical talents to the game of backgammon and won the American Backgammon Tour.Arthur Benjamin is also a professional magician, and frequently performs at the Magic Castle in Hollywood. He is the author of several books, and four DVD courses from The Great Courses series, including "The Joy of Mathematics", "The Mathematics of Games and Puzzles", and "The Secrets of Mental Math".

*The Today Show*, CNN, National Public Radio, and*The Colbert Report*. His three TED talks have been viewed over 10 million times. He has been featured in*Scientific American, Omni, Discover, People, Esquire, New York Times, Los Angeles Times*, and*Reader's Digest*. In 2005,*Reader's Digest*called him "America's Best Math Whiz."This Hangout On Air is hosted by Mathematical Association of America. The live video broadcast will begin soon.

Story

Introduction

I'm a mathematician, with special interest in statistics. I like programming, classical music, travelling, skiing and playing with my daughter Juliette.

Before the birth of Juliette, I was an active amateur photographer. I very recently resumed this hobby as she likes making pictures.
