|Ivars Peterson (Math Muse for Kids)|
|Prof. Arthur Benjamin amazes audiences by multiplying numbers in his head faster than someone using a calculator. Benjamin says that anyone - young or old - can learn to do the same feats of mental arithmetic. All it takes is a memory for numbers and the trick of calculating from left to right, opposite to the way you were probably taught... [Produced 10 times a year by the publishers of Cricket magazine (in association with Smithsonian magazine), Muse features articles and activities for children 8 years old and up.]|
