E: How to Multiply by Adding
Scott, Paul
Australian Mathematics Teacher, v65 n2 p3-5 2009
These days, multiplying two numbers together is a breeze. One just enters the two numbers into one's calculator, press a button, and there is the answer! It never used to be this easy. Generations of students struggled with tables of logarithms, and thought it was a miracle when the slide rule first appeared. In this article, the author discusses how to multiply by adding and offers ways on how to make a simple slide rule.
