## How do you do the Japanese method of multiplication?

Draw sets of parallels, perpendicular to the first sets of parallels, corresponding to each digit of the second number (the multiplier). Put dots where each line crosses another line. On the left corner, put a curved line through the wide spot with no points. Do the same with the right.

**What are some of the methods in multiplying numbers?**

Four multiplication methods are: addition method, long multiplication, grid method, and drawing lines. Each of these methods will result in the same correct product.

### Who invented Japanese multiplication trick?

Despite its name, the origin of the Japanese Multiplication Method is unknown. The method is also known as Indian Multiplication and Chinese Stick Multiplication, but it is not known if it actually did originate from Japan, India, China, or elsewhere.

**What is Japanese multiplication called?**

While the user, jesslouisec, calls the method Japanese multiplication and some mathematicians say it’s “Vedic multiplying,” its real origins aren’t exactly clear. Sometimes it’s Japanese, sometimes it’s Chinese, and sometimes it’s called line or stick multiplication.

#### What is the Russian peasant method?

Russian peasant multiplication is an interesting way to multiply numbers that uses a process of halving and doubling without using multiplication operator. The idea is to double the first number and halve the second number repeatedly till the second number doesn’t become 1 .

**What is the Gelosia method?**

Lattice multiplication, also known as the Italian method, Chinese method, Chinese lattice, gelosia multiplication, sieve multiplication, shabakh, diagonally or Venetian squares, is a method of multiplication that uses a lattice to multiply two multi-digit numbers.

## How is math taught in Japan?

Japan Math’s program heavily emphasizes the idea of students thinking for themselves and strengthening their own problem-solving skills, rather than teachers giving students the solutions too quickly.

**What is the Egyptian method?**

The so-called Egyptian method is a nighttime technique that involves stretching out between damp, cool sheets in an effort to lower the body’s temperature and provide a cool, relaxing environment.

### What is the Chinese method in maths?

**Is Japanese multiplication easier?**

For example, the Japanese multiplication method becomes very efficient when dealing with small numbers – just try 9×8 and suddenly you find yourself counting 72 different intersections. Not nearly as efficient as other multiplication methods!

#### Who developed the Gelosia method of multiplication?

John Napier

Gelosia Method This was brought over as a method from India to Europe in the 14th century, with Gelosia meaning ‘lattice’ from the trellis work on windows in Italy. John Napier based his set of bones on this Gelosia arrangement on a grid.

## How do you multiply with magic lines?

The video above illustrates the basic method behind these magic lines. You draw lines on the diagonal to represent the numbers of the first number to multiply, then cross those lines with the other number’s lines. Add up the intersections for each area, and you have the correct total.
