The Original Mysterious Rabbit

Students will enjoy this amazing card trick! How does the computer know which card has been chosen? Students should propose a hypothesis and conduct a simple test to verify or reject it. Remind them that lack of an explanation does not mean that the bunny is invested with supernatural powers. The key to solving the puzzle is to be a very careful observer.
