Visualizing Extraordinary Ways to Multiply by James Tanton

Visualizing Extraordinary Ways to Multiply

by James Tanton


Title Details

Running Time
30 Min.

This lecture is part of a course from The Great Courses called The Irish Identity: Independence, History, and Literature taught by Professor Marc C. Conner, Ph.D.. This course and over 300 other courses can be accessed with a subscription to Wondrium.

In this fun and often illuminating lecture provided by The Great Courses, math evangelist James S. Tanton talks all about how to visualize multiplication in new, often counter-intuitive ways. From quirky examples like the line method (which doesn’t look like it should work at all), to how we might rethink the usual algorithms we learn in grade school, Professor Tanton does a great job of breaking up the anxiety we sometimes attach to mathematical problems. Enthusiastic and excited to share these methods, Tanton closes the lectures with a closed fist method that will get you playing along with him as he makes math easier to understand.
