Mathemagics with Dr. Art Benjamin

Join the Hopkins Undergraduate Society for Applied Mathematics for our annual Mathemagics Night: a night of mental math, magic, and fun!

Dr. Arthur Benjamin, known as "America's Best Math Whiz" and the "lightning calculator," will demonstrate and explain to us the secrets behind rapid mental math calculations and tricks.

Get to enjoy not only the performance but the refreshments and snacks with the rest of JHU students and AMS faculty, from 7 to 10 p.m. on Monday, April 9, at Hodson 110.

A professional magician and author of several books, Dr. Art Benjamin has presented his mixture of math and magic to audiences all over the world, including appearances in two TED talks and The Colbert Report. Some of his most popular demonstrations include how to multiply numbers in your head faster than a calculator, how to figure out the day of the week of any date in history, and how to memorize 100 digits of pi.

An alumnus of JHU and a professor of mathematics at Harvey Mudd College, Dr. Benjamin has received national recognition for his teaching of mathematics.
