Video: The Secrets of Mental Math by Art Benjamin

In case you missed his presentation last night at Barnes & Noble Encino, here is a short video of Art Benjamin, Professor at Harvey Mudd College and Mathemagician, presenting "magic squares", just one of the concepts taught in his book. The Secrets of Mental Math.

Art regularly performs his MathMagic act The Magic Castle in Hollywood and is a frequent speaker around the country. He also presented at this year's TED Conference in Monterey, California.

Wow - there is a secret to magic squares but the speed that he disd it whilst talking at the same time is pretty impressive.

As a finale in his show he squares a random 5 digit number from the audience, doing it out loud so you can hear what he is thinking. Very fun.
