So Raven was struggling with the multiplication of double digit and multi digit numbers...I thought...Well my way was the only way...Then she got so frustrated, she cried...WHAT?????? I closed the book, said school was out for the day (Yes I am an Author, Humanitarian, Home-school educator, Wife, Mother, Walipni builder, Website keeper....ick...Let's make it easy...I am Elicia) I sat down at the computer. Oh the glorious thing...and I asked Google and YouTube: How to do Multiplication. (Yes I am a graduate of Google and YouTube..when is the test?)
And I must say...I am amazed out how BEAUTIFUL MATH IS. There were so many ways to multiply 12 * 13 Seriously.
So without further adieu, in two parts: 6 or 7 methods of Multiplication (you be the judge on that). I will add more as I go along:
Part 1: Common Core (have to have), Old (mom, dad, grandma, grandpa) Asian grid. Part 2: Ancient (sand Script Math) :) If you have any questions, leave a comment, I will do my best to answer. (Sorry about the video quality. I couldn't use my video camera or my HD computer...they made the numbers backwards...Video 101...Plus..the angle is limited...I had to use a hand held..point and shoot Camera...Ah...life...How wonderful is it that we have a camera, a video recorder, and a computer that can capture life...Pretty Amazing!!! )
