Math Mathemagical Tricks Jay Cummings, Sacramento State University
Most magic tricks amaze by the subtle use of small lies: a well-practiced sleight of the hand, or equipment with a deceptive property.

In this talk I will demonstrate several mathematical tricks for you, and will show you how (most) of them are done.
