School-Day Show: MatheMagic! Starring Bradley Fields
Internationally acclaimed magician and educator Bradley Fields captivates students with his famous magic illusions, and turns themon to the history, the power and the beauty of the language of Math.
The show promotes math skills and problem-solving through visuals, history, language and world-class entertainment.
Kids travel back to ancient times to meet Imhotep the Magician (whose secret is really math), Zeno (whose paradoxes inspired Newton) and, of course, Pythagoras and his famous theorem. By integrating math concepts with vocabulary, geography, history and everyday problem solving, audiences of different interests, abilities and learning styles are able to relate to math in new ways.
Bradley Fields will also present a performance of MatheMagic! at 7:00 p.m.
Presented by: Caltech Committee on Institute Programs
