    Benjamin makes numbers dance. In his day job, he's a professor of mathematics at Harvey Mudd College; in his other day job, he's a "Mathemagician," taking the stage to perform high-speed mental calculations, memorisations and other astounding mathematic stunts. It's part of his drive to teach math and mental agility in interesting ways, following in the footsteps of such heroes as Martin Gardner.

    TEDxOxford is organised by University of Oxford students, aiming to bring together the young minds of tomorrow's world with the movers and shakers of today. TEDxOxford is kindly sponsored by Neptune Investment Management - www.neptunefunds.com

    In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)

All those mental gymnastics make me appreciate calculators more. But it's almost achievable if u know the 3 main steps and have average ability at multiplying, then can recall the 3 results and add together. Even then however it's most unlikely u get the right answer, but with a lot of practice maybe. To do it that quickly without any written cues would take many years of practice and memory training. Even Art uses memory aids. To retain numbers in my head I need a lot of repetition, which takes time. I like this method for calculating squares (I use like 37x691x2000 rather than what he said) which is surprisingly not so difficult to do. I did 37x700 then subtracted 9x37. Also the 691^2 was much easier using the other method of 700x682+9^2, just 7x682 and replace the added zeroes with 81. He knew 37^2 which easily converts 37000^2 to 1,369,000,000 then it's only adding the 3 together, calculated in size order. Sounds easy huh? The vedic method is much more simple in writing but don't know if it can be done mentally unless having a perfect memory recall. Likewise there's another method of simply squaring each digit.
