The 71113 trick A trick multiplication you can do faster than a calculator The Prime Numbers Trick A strange little prediction A betting trick with seven cards that always makes money! The Red and Black Mystery! A card trick to baffle people, and you don't even need to touch the cards! The Mindreader A prediction trick. (Hint: it relies on the properties of the number nine!) The Five Card Trick As presented here, this trick encourages use of the 5x table for younger kids.
