Video: Cool Multiplication Math Trick

multiplication_with_linesThe following video will do nothing to improve your understanding of finance (my primary Bankers Anonymous goal) but if you, like me, occasionally have the opportunity to teach math to 8 years olds, you might find this as cool as I do.
