Struggling with maths? This teacher’s trick might make it a tad bit easy for you. Business tycoon Anand Mahindra tweeted a video that featured a math teacher teaching clever shortcuts to her students to learn math multiplication tables faster.
“Whaaaat? I didn’t know about this clever shortcut. Wish she had been MY math teacher. I probably would have been a lot better at the subject!” wrote Mahindra while sharing the video, which has now gone viral on several social media platforms.
In the 2.20-minute clip, the teacher can be heard telling her students how the hand is like a calculator and can be used to do multiplication. She then goes on to teach them how to learn the table of 9 by counting their fingers.
