Simple Method of Multiplication up to 5 x 5 tables
Each number is drawn as a straight parallel lines, so 2 is two lines. To multiply 2 x 3, you draw 2 lines for 2 and 3 lines for 3 at right angles to the 2 lines. The result is then the times the lines cross. You just count these up to get the result, no prior need to understand multiplication at all, just the ability to draw straight lines and count the intersections. The ease of use of this method and it simplicity should help any student to do multiplication and see where the result comes from.
