This made me smile.



As a kid I easily remembered the approximation 22/7, but this diagram might have been easier. Just like I used my fingers for my 9 times table (multiplication).

ooh for those who don't know the 9x table trick, i found a video :) 







now you know :)

  8. I learned the 9 times table in a weird way. You count one down from the number you're multiplying and add whatever number will make it equal to 9. For instance: 9 x 3=?, 3-1=2, 2+7=9. It seems so complicated seeing it written out, but it makes sense when you actually do it.

  9. Oh, I hated Maths. Now I have a just about comfortable relationship with it. Wouldn't push it, though...
