In this activity, students use geometrical shapes to make a magic tube that can produce ribbons.
It’s not just a saying that it’s all “smoke and mirrors”!
Magicians use a lot of math to make their illusions work. If an illusion isn’t built properly, or if the audience is at an unwanted angle, the “magic” won’t work.
This trick relies on the use of math. See how the combination of two familiar geometrical objects (cylinders and cones) can come together to create something "mathemagical".
