By Professor Arthur Benjamin
For the last 30 years, Dr. Benjamin has presented his mixture of math and magic all over the world to thousands of groups. He has given three TED talks which have been viewed over 50 million times. He has authored several books and DVD courses that share the beauty and magic of mathematics. His most recent book, “The Magic of Math” was a New York Times Bestseller. In 2012, he was selected by Princeton Review as one of The Best 300 Professors. He has received numerous awards for his writing and teaching from the Mathematical Association of America. He also happens to be an expert backgammon player, and in 2022 was inducted into the American Backgammon Hall of Fame.
Dr Benjamin combines his two loves to create a dynamic presentation called “Mathemagics,” suitable for all audiences. In this high energy talk, he will demonstrate and explain his secrets for performing rapid mental calculations faster than a calculator, among other tricks.
