There is a SIMPLE way of doing this "magic" for students who can add one and two digit numbers. Basically, there are 5 magical circles and the children will choose a number and you will ask them questions to figure it out. The directions are thorough with pictures - check out the preview.

This is a great back to school activity or something to keep your kids on the edge of their seats all year.

I have seen a similar math magic trick, but it was hand written and an old, faded copy. I'm not sure where it came from other than it had been passed down from many teachers. I search the internet, but no luck. This one I created is clean and crisp.
