    Default Attention teachers and math geeks: a new way to multiply

    Pretty wild. I've tried it, and it seems to work.

    Welcome to Pacers Digest! New around here? Here are three tips for making the forum a great place to talk about Pacers basketball.

    • Log in. Even if you want to read instead of post, it's helpful because it lets you:
    • Change your signature options. You can hide all signatures by choosing "Settings" (top right) then "General Settings" (middle left) and unchecking the box "Show Signatures" (in the "Thread Display Options" area).
    • Create an ignore list. I know it may seem unneighborly. But you're here to talk about the Pacers, not argue with someone who's just looking for an argument. Most of the regular users on here make use (at least occasionally) of the "Ignore" feature. Just go to "Settings" -> "Edit Ignore List" and add the names.

    Enjoy your time at PD!

    The explanation behind it is rather straight-forward if you look at what he's doing, but it's an interesting way to illustrate multiplication in a new way.

    I need to show that to my daughter. She's 11 and she's had multiple teachers and tutors try to show her different ways to multiply (and divide) but it's obvious that her brain is just wired different. This seems like something she could get her head around pretty easily.

    Wow. I just tried it. I just copied what he did though, but nevertheless, it works! Awesome find!
