How do japanese multiply?? - YouTube
I just lost two mins of my life watching that
i think its awesome
That's so clever
I am so sad that I just sat and tried it out myself
That is pretty clever.
While I always think it's pretty cool to see a different way of figuring maths I was able to get the correct answer using the western method of multiplying in about 1/10th of the time. I have my paper in front of me and honestly he/she was still drawing lines when I'd gotten the answer.
And you were still writing it while I had the answer on my calculator
You have to remember though that he/she is going slow so people can see/follow what they are doing. Would be interesting to compare each way at normal speed.
That's pretty amazing way of doing it.....but I would get bored after drawing the lines and end up playing naughts and crosses
Ok, i actually quite like that :w00t: And yes im that sad i am going of now to try it hahaha :001_tongue:
I was trying to be fair. And you're right of course too, I'm sure if the person was going fast he/she might have beat me!
OT, but I think people, kids especially, rely on calculators too much. My daughter will be 14 tomorrow and there are kids in her grade who don't know their timestables. I wouldn't let my daughter have one at school till last year and she broke it this year and didn't tell me (I will replace it), but she still gets top scores in maths and often finishes tests faster than the kids who are using them. It's the same with our 9yr old son who had trouble with his maths last year and we still drill him on multiplication and division.
