This spectacular magic trick never fails to amaze people of all ages assuming they can add and subtract very simple numbers. The mathematics comes in finding out how the trick works.

This game is intended to provide a little bit of fun with a loose mathematical connection. There is of course mathematics involved in knowing the angle and stretch required to get the cat to the correct shelf. There is also mathematics involved in following the instructions about the number sequences.

The sequences appear here for those who have a Transum Subscription.
