Lattice Multiplication in a Preservice Classroom
Nugent, Patricia M.
Mathematics Teaching in the Middle School, v13 n2 p110-113 Sep 2007
This article discusses the algorithm for multiplication that is referred to as lattice multiplication. Evidence of how the author's preservice students' conceptual understanding of the algorithm grew through the semester is given. In addition, the author extends the conceptualization of the algorithm from the multiplication of whole numbers to the multiplication of polynomials. (Contains 5 figures.)
