Lattice Method for Multiplication needed for Teacher Testing in Mass.

Check out problem 17 in this practice test.

This is really odd that a multiplication method which has little use is required for teachers. I guess because Everyday Math, which has the lattice method is used in some schools, it follows that all teachers are required to know the lattice method.

Napier used lm to help predict the date of the apocalypse (3 times). So NCTM says if it was good enough for the bible, then it ought to be good enough for school. Evolution is a theory dreamed up by Darwin. And the NSF can go blow smoke up a tailpipe.
