The Math of Shuffling Cards

Previously, the first YouTube video wasn’t working. I have added a new link to the interesting “Looking at Perfect Shuffles” video. 🙂

Singapore Maths Tuition

A magic trick based on the “Perfect Shuffle”. Featuring Professor Federico Ardila. I watched his videos on Hopf Algebras while learning the background material for my honours project on Quantum Groups.

Mathemagician Persi Diaconis discusses which is the best way to shuffle: Overhand shuffle, Riffle Shuffle, or “Smoosh” Shuffle? Watch the video to find out!

Magical Mathematics: The Mathematical Ideas That Animate Great Magic Tricks is an interesting book by Professor Diaconis, featuring Magic Tricks that have a mathematical background! This book is a great idea for a gift for students, teachers, or friends!
