# 3rd Grade math homework....LATTICE METHOD *update*

Posted by   + Show Post

LATTICE METHOD

for multiplication

Just to clear some things up:

*Yes, this was ' fuckery ' at first

*No, I'm not opposed to new methods of learning

*Yes, I understand it now

Are your children learning this in school? Do they understand it? Or are they using other methods instead?

HERE'S THE HOW TO BELOW

Lattice method starts at about :43

****UPDATE****   Well since this got commented on again, I'll just go ahead and update it and say that BOTH of my dds are doing GREAT with this method. They are much better with lattice versus partial products, which is another one they are being taught.

It's pretty easy once you learn it. This is also how the Japanese and Chinese learn it.

yup, it's pretty ridiculous.  My daughter came home with that crap completely confused so I showed her how I learned.  You know

12

x14

___

48

120

____

168

All of a sudden she understood completely and was racing through doing it that way.

My baby sister learned this way. Once she got the hang of it, she did fine and it does work. I couldnt help her though, I am old fashioned and only know how to do it the "normal" way lol
