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.

SUCD: Some Unusual Chemical Demonstrations

Richard Paddon

SUCD: Some Unusual Chemical Demonstrations by Richard PaddonThis ebook describes how to make ten of the most interesting chemical reactions possible. From liquids that change colour as they are mixed, liquids that apparently read minds or have feelings, to spectacular glowing reactions. The explanations and science behind some reactions are also offered.

Contents

  • Safety First
  • Introduction
  • Water - Ink - Wine: Water poured from a jug changes into different coloured liquids (water, ink and wine). These then change colour as they are mixed.
  • The Blue-Bottle Reaction: Each time a sealed bottle of a clear, colourless liquid is shaken, the liquid changes...

Comedy Coin Prediction

Devin Knight

Comedy Coin Prediction by Devin Knight
"I just got this today, it's great! Sometimes, the simple tricks are the best. I've already shown it to some people, and it really DOES get a big laugh. Thanks!" - Dave D.
Effect: Here is a very novel comedy close-up prediction effect that your spectators haven’t seen before. Almost everyone carries a cell phone nowadays, and most all of the cell phones have a calculator. Tell your spectator that you have made a prediction and that it is contained inside a small coin envelope. Tell him the envelope contains some coins that will predict a number he will create at random, from a number...

Transparent Prediction: print and perform 2

George Marchese

Transparent Prediction: print and perform 2 by George MarcheseThis is the second in the series "print and perform". In this series you have not only the instructions for the tricks but also the templates to print and perform the effects.

EFFECT : You show an envelope containing a "prediction" and give it to hold to someone. A spectator is given a pocket calculator (… or he can use the one on his cellphone…). He freely chooses a 3 digit number and then is told to make some simple calculations arriving at a random total. At this point you take the envelope with the prediction, open it and extract a sheet of clear plastic with your prediction printed...

Chemical Magic

V. E. Johnson

Chemical Magic by V. E. JohnsonThis ebook describes a host of chemical experiments which can be presented as magic tricks or surprising science experiments. It is a reproduction of an old book and therefore some of these experiments require exotic chemicals, some of which are toxic or can be harmful in many other ways. If you intend to replicate any of these experiments you must follow all laws and regulations and you are on your own in terms of any liabilities. We are reproducing this book for historic and information purposes.

Contents:

  • Wine and water and other transmutations of liquid colors
  • Disappearing and reappearing...

Patterns of Perfection Revisited

Sam Dalal

Patterns of Perfection Revisited by Sam 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...

Fun With Magic

George Brunel

Fun With Magic by George BrunelAmusing Experiments in Physics, Chemistry and Geometry

The title is a little bit misleading, because there are no real magic tricks in this book, at least not the kind that a magician would assume. It is essentially a book of 'kitchen' science experiments. Some of these experiments can of course be presented like a magic trick. But the majority of them are simply interesting or surprising science experiments which can be done at home with a little bit of preparation.

From the preface:

The sole aim of this little book, aside from its purposes as a source of profitable pastime, is to...

E-Z Square 1

Werner Miller

E-Z Square 1 by Werner 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...

E-Z Square 2

Werner Miller

E-Z Square 2 by Werner MillerHere Werner Miller attacks the 4x4 square. (E-Z Square 1 deals with the 5x5 square.). You will learn a new and easy method to construct a 4x4 magic square starting with two or four given numbers.

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...

Mostly Perfect

Michael Daniels

Mostly Perfect by Michael DanielsMostly Perfect is an instant 4x4 magic square presentation for any named total that simplifies the computational method originally developed by Orville Meyer (and which has also been published by Mark Farrar, Bill Fritz and Harry Lorayne, among others). Mostly Perfect also produces even more balanced and elegant squares than those produced by the Meyer method.

The ebook also comes with a browser application (no Internet connection needed) to facilitate learning of the method.

E-Z Square 4

Werner Miller

E-Z Square 4 by Werner Miller
"The hallmark of all the E-Z Square is their clarity of magic square instruction, as well as a selection of variations that's enough to start your mind racing with presentational possibilities." - Scott Cram
Giving a performance the appearance of difficulty and effort sometimes adds to the success of an artistic feat. Even if you are only constructing a magic square you can benefit from this phenomenon...

E-Z Square 5

Werner Miller

E-Z Square 5 by Werner MillerAfter seeing a performance of Richard Wiseman's Grid, which shares some commonalities with Chris Wasshuber's The Ultimate Magic Square, Werner Miller was inspired to come up with his take on 'magic squares made from cards' ...

The spectator decides on a number, and you produce instantly a magic square that has the spectator's number as its constant – simply by dealing out 16 or 25 ordinary playing cards.

As an example here is the detailed effect for variation 2: Take out a deck of cards, give it a quick shuffle and then offer the spectator the deck for a cut. The spectator cuts off a portion of the deck and counts the amount...

E-Z Square 6

Werner Miller

E-Z Square 6 by Werner MillerThis will most likely be Werner Miller's last installment in his E-Z Square series. In this ebook he revisits several of the routines he published before, but finds ways to simplify them further or structure them in a cleaner and clearer way. He does that with a Birthday Square, a routine involving a measuring tape, and magic squares using cards.

As a bonus Werner includes several magic square puzzles.

Magical Experiments

Arthur Good

Magical Experiments by Arthur GoodThe best way of learning new things is doing them. Magical Experiments or Science in Play is a fascinating collection of kitchen table top experiments with every day household goods. Many of which have a 'magical' twist to them, in the sense that it is for the unfamiliar observer not quite clear how these tricks are performed, or what the physical mechanisms behind them are. More than 150 experiments are described with gorgeous lithographs. This book was originally written in French and later translated to English. This in itself is a proof of quality, otherwise the translation would not have...

The Amazing Magic Square and Master Memory Demonstration

Orville Wayne Meyer

The Amazing Magic Square and Master Memory Demonstration by Orville 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...
