Home / Magic & Conjuring / Science & Math Tricks

Science often appears like magic. Even some small physics or chemical experiment can be utterly baffling. Same is true with math. Some of the best self-working magic tricks have a mathematical foundation at heart. That is why particularly in the past magicians were often exhibiting the latest advances in science and technology as entertainment. For example, Robert-Houdin's "Heavy and Light Chest" was a simple application of an electromagnet. The projection of images and later moving images was mostly done by magicians in the early days of photography and film.

## E-Z Square 1Werner MillerThis is a magic square effect where spectators freely enter numbers in the main diagonal and you quickly fill out the rest of the numbers producing a perfect magic square. Alternatively you could perform this the classic way that a spectator calls out a number and you fill in all the numbers to form a magic square. But the effect is stronger if your audience can freely choose not just the sum but several numbers in the square. In a variation Werner shows you how spectators can even select the squares where you should next enter a number during your fill-out sequence. The method is so simple... | ★★★★★ $6 to wish list | |

## E-Z Square 2Werner MillerHere Werner Miller attacks the 4x4 square. ( The real gem in this manuscript is the bonus routine. It is a unique presentation which makes your work simpler and allows you to predict the sum of the square. The effect is as follows: Take out a soft measuring tape of the kind tailors use (which has centimeters or inches marked on both sides), and a prediction. Give the prediction to a spectator for safekeeping. You will never touch it again. Have two... | ★★★★★ $6 to wish list | |

## Ear MarkedWerner MillerThis was Werner Miller's first English publication and it holds 51 astonishing tricks, all based on clever mathematical principles. You will find next to tricks with cards, numbers, and dice also topological tricks with paper and cardboard. One of my favorite tricks is called "Quick Change Square" where a 4x4 square changes from a non-magic square to a magic square in a flash. In "Crazy Square", Werner combines the olde "Chinese Compass" with the "magic square" and produces a witty, lively piece. In "Aeolic Prelude", Werner takes a compass and an ESP deck to produce a nice little bit of ritual... | ★★★★★ $20 to wish list | |

## Why A Magic Square Should Not Be A Magic SquareUnknown Mentalist

A novel and self working routine is included which uses the magic square principles in a clever and unconventional manner but does not... | ★★★★★ $18 to wish list | |

## 1089 Refreshed and ReloadedUnknown MentalistThere would hardly be any mentalist or magician who would not be familiar with the old and well known 1089 force.

But throughout the history of magic, this unique force has been extremely fascinating both mathematically and magically. Here are some fresh and novel ideas related to this force which you can actually go out and use right today.

## Patterns of Perfection RevisitedSam DalalAn easy approach to the perfect Magic Square. This is a completely new, and easier method for compiling a 4x4 (16 cell) Magic square that totals to any number called by the audience in 52 different ways. The original method from which this has evolved was first published in 1993. You can master this with just a few trials in less than an hour, and use it for a lifetime - with nothing to buy, nothing to replace! With most magic square effects the method has two components. One component is memorization, the other calculation. For example, you memorize one particular magic square and... | ★★★★★ $4.75 to wish list | |

## Ask PythagorasRobin GillettThe performer selects a participant from the audience (no stooges, no pre-show) who is asked to think of a significant date in his/her life (nothing is written down nor told to anyone). The participant divides three numbers into the thought of date and the performer interprets the results as Pythagoras (the Father of Numerology) would have to reveal aspects of the participant's past, present, and future. Then, he surprises every one by revealing the thought of date! This is one of several presentations described in this e-book, including one contributed by the Unknown Mentalist. The method is a sophisticated... | ★★★★★ $18 to wish list | |

## Miracle Cube Root ExtractionRobert A. Nelson & B. W. McCarronAn apparent demonstration of superior brain power. Any number between 1 and 100 is cubed by a spectator, and the final result called aloud. The performer immediately extracts the cube root of this number without the use of electronics, stooges, or gimmicks. The calculation is performed immediately and entirely in the performer's mind, thanks to the secret master key. This feat, performed on paper after a lengthy effort by a spectator, is considered quite an accomplishment, but performed instantly, it is a sensation. Performer knows only the number submitted by the spectator, and immediately... | $6 to wish list | |

## Free WillRenzo GrossoLeonardo Pisano known as Fibonacci (Pisa, ~ September 1170 - Pisa, ~1242) was an Italian mathematician, and is known above all for the sequence of numbers identified by him and known, in fact, as the "Fibonacci sequence" - 1, 1, 2, 3, 5, 8, 13, 21, 34, 55, 89 ... - in each term, apart from the first two, is the sum of the two preceding it. A peculiarity of the Fibonacci sequence is that the ratio between the successive pairs of terms tends very rapidly to the number 1.61803 ..., known as the golden ratio or golden section. The applications are innumerable: in chemistry, botany, the human... | $10 to wish list | |

## SynchronicityRenzo Grosso"Chance does not exist, and what seems to us casual springs from the deepest sources" (Friedrich Schiller). Surely it has happened to you that a book or an advertisement gave you the answer to that doubt that was hammering you or you happened to call a person on the phone at the same moment in which he was calling you or to have had an unexpected meeting in an unexpected place or meeting just the person you needed at that exact moment. These are not randomness, but synchronicity, one of the most enigmatic and surprising aspects of this universe. According to Carl Gustav Jung, the term... | $10 to wish list | |

## Miraculous NumbersPeter WilkerA university professor of mathematics takes on tricks based on math. From the preface: As mathematics is (or was) my profession and magic my hobby, I was always interested in tricks that combined both, notably tricks with pure numbers. ... Unfortunately, I soon noticed that in most of the so-called mathemagical tricks there was very little mathematics and even less magic! What people use to call "mathematics" are mostly extremely simple arithmetical facts, and if you plodded through the tricks with numbers they proved to be excessively boring. I do not know if I have succeeded to get... | ★★★★★ $12 to wish list | |

## Paradoxes of Size: A Treatise on Geometric VanishesPeter PrevosGeometry is one of the most logical human pursuits. Geometry can also be deceiving, and magicians use it to create the illusion of magic. This ebook discusses magic tricks based on geometric vanishes, also known as the Missing Square Puzzle. These magic tricks have recently become wildly popular with millions of views on YouTube. These magic tricks evolved from a mathematical error to an apparent paradox. Magicians have added layers of deception to turn mathematics into a piece of theatre. This ebook discusses the history and principles of the three types of geometric vanishes: - The Vanishing...

## The Amazing Magic Square and Master Memory DemonstrationOrville Wayne MeyerOrville Meyer, probably most famous for developing the bullet catch for Ted Annemann, demonstrates here his skill to routine amazing effects. The stunt of forming a sixteen cell magic square that will add up to a number suggested by a spectator is a spectacular mathematical feat. Memorizing and repeating a list of objects named by members of the audience is an interesting and impressive mental demonstration. When you combine the formation of the sixteen cell magic square with the memorized list of objects, you really have something! But we do not stop there! In this version, the double-barreled feat... | ★★★★★ $7 to wish list | |

## Pyramid PropheciesNick ConticelloFrom the introduction: This ebook is a bit of a departure for me. The material is mathematical, but it need not be performed with playing cards. It can be performed with pencil and paper close-up, or with a blackboard or a dry-erase white board in platform or stage settings. Thus it can be employed in situations when the use of playing cards would be inappropriate. However, I will describe these effects with playing cards as that is how I use them. The basic idea is that the performer predicts the sum of a seemingly random array of cards or numbers. The spectator has quite a bit of control... | ★★★★★ $12 to wish list | |
