The lattice algorithm for multiplication has been traced to India, where it was in use before A.D.1100. Many Everyday Mathematics students find this particular multiplication algorithm to be one of their favorites. It helps them keep track of all the partial products without having to write extra zeros – and it helps them practice their multiplication facts Lattice Multiplication
