In this fourth part in a series, learners follow the steps of the “mathemagician” to examine three numerical curiosities: Be a Psychic by Predicting Birthdays, Predict a Card with Mind Reading, and Predict the Three Die Values Your Opponent Has Rolled. Learners will also study palindromic numbers and look at two alphametric puzzles.
