The invited speaker started the virtual event by sharing stories about Martin Gardner’s life, who is known as being the best friend of mathematics. Dr. Ricardo Teixeira presented several mathemagic tricks that appear in Martin Gardner’s books, including a magic trick using playing cards, a trick that involves parity and a trick with cyclic numbers.
