    Tbh if you actually care enough about math (doesnt need to like it, just not deep hate) to want be able count simple calulations, u will start noticing these easier patterns or get it from internet in shorter time. And u will actually remember it cuz u care enough to want to

    31:55 - So 78 x 11 = 7,158? This is where you really DO have to carry the 1. Lol

    my 3 1/2 year old loves math and can count beyond a hundred, count by different numbers, multiply, add, and subtract. What do I do to help him advance further while he has the passion for it?

    what about 37 x 11? did he say something about when the numbers add to ten? Would the ten from the 3 and 7 carry over to the 3 making it a 4?

    Since he mentioned the 11 multiplication trick, I thought I could add that: any number ×5 is that number cut in half, and with a 0. 6×5 is half of 6 (3) with numbers that don't cut in half perfectly, you just drop the zero. 5×5 is half of 5 (2.5) but throw out the decimal. 15×5 (7.5) 75 30×5=150 etc

    I like how the whole angles-in-numbers thing was some irrelevant, ad-hoc sophistry that didn't even work right and had to actually alter some of the numbers drastically.
