Rate this:
In this TEDTalk, mathematician and magician Arthur Benjamin combines his two passions into mathemagic with a mind-boggling presentation of lightning calculations and other feats of mathematical agility. He races a team using calculators to figure out three-digit squares, calculates birth days from birth dates, and solves the square of 57,683 aloud using an arithmetic combination of digits and words like "cookie fission." "After his lively shows, students often rush the stage, eager for more tips and tricks," says Reader's Digest.
