Another random post for you today. Put together this video after having a discussion with a friend, Amanda, about how math is taught in schools and how if we would teach alternative methods we might be able to get kids more interested in math.
This video explains the use of basic (Power 2) binary code can help kids with simple math problems. 

Watch until the very end to see a special trick for multiplying 2 double digit numbers using a simple graphical trick. 

Cheers to doing things just a little differently and making sense of things by trying another angle,
