The Math Candles are a set of five wooden ‘candles’ with a column of 5 single digits on each. Have someone place any or all of the candles in the holder, you now have five rows of numbers. Before anyone is able to add the five rows together on a calculator you are able to give the exact sum within a few seconds.
Each candle also has numbers on the reverse and any number of candles can be chosen so there are many possible ways of arranging them in the holder.
A very simple but fun math trick suitable for ages 12+.
Made from precision cut wood the candles measure roughly 95 x 22mm and the base measures 140 x 50mm.
Instructions are supplied.
