Six has been considered a number of mystical significance since ancient times. The Pythagoreans considered the number to be "perfect" because of its remarkable number-theoretic properties.  The number six also plays an extremely important role in nature; for example, bees have long considered six to be the perfect number of sides for each cell of their honeycomb - and for good reason!  In art too, the use of six-fold symmetry is a technique of the highest importance.

In this interactive session, Dr. Bhargava will give a tour through some of these remarkable properties of the number six, and end by teaching some nontrivial magic tricks that make use of these properties — all in celebration of MoMath’s sixth birthday!
