Brian Kell Carnegie Mellon University Title: Magic Squares and Magic Hexagons Abstract: A magic square is an arrangement of the numbers 1, 2, ..., n^2 in an nbyn square so that the sum of the numbers in every row, every column, and both long diagonals is the same. I will talk briefly about the history of magic squares and present some methods to construct them. Then I will consider an extension of the idea to magic hexagons, culminating in a surprising result.
