Thanks to Lee Parkinson @ICT_MrP (His excellent blog can be found here http://mrparkinsonict.blogspot.co.uk/ ). for finding this interesting method of multiplication. I haven't tried it myself but he is trying it with his class next week and will let me know how they get on. Is there anybody else that has tried this method and what results have you had? If you have please tweet @grahamandre or email me firstname.lastname@example.org
This shed will have a mixture of counting in different languages and ways that maths may be taught in different countries. Enjoy.
