Seriously. The best thing I ever did for getting good at math was lose my calculator early on in pre-calculus and not tell my parents.
And the lines would get faster in a hurry if you drew them faster. Too bad that long division is faster unless you are slow at multiplying by 7, 8, or 9, in which case you have more lines to draw.
Best part I can see about this is that it works with other base systems - suppose you want to multiply 6`b011101 by 6`b111001. Or 8`h1A by 8`h06. Could help.
Normally I just strain to figure it out until I break down and do that damned lattice method of multiplication
I imagine it has some practical application, though. Might be a fun project.
this is quite a good method if your bored and have time, its not faster but it would be fun to see what the teacher did when they saw this
these lines sure would solve that problem
/One...two...TWO boobies! Ah ah ah!!!
but it is cool in theory. i dont think i`ll ever use it tho.
WOW this is amazing.
I suppose this method would help the visual learners, but I`m a math tutor at my local college and wouldn`t recommend this trick to anyone. It`s time consuming and requires more space on the paper. Oh, and some of you may be forgetting that in lower level math classes, calculators are not permitted.
me = nerd... i know...
