Dr James Stanton recently wrote an essay on Weird Multiplication. It's a great read and not just because it mentions my own weird way to multiply with a circle.
Yet what's weirder than weird multiplication? Weird division!

ABOUT In 1968 at age 7 in Grade 2, Jonathan J. Crabtree noticed Euclid's definition of multiplication made no sense. Two added to itself three times is 8, not 6, as people have said for centuries. (HINT 2 added to itself once is 4.)

Jonathan went on to explore hundreds of original source mathematics books & manuscripts spanning 16 languages. Euclid's definition of multiplication had been incorrectly translated into English in 1570 and was NEVER corrected!

Jonathan's recent published paper and conference presentation titled, The Lost Logic of Elementary Mathematics reveals when why and how western mathematics education came to be filled with mistruths, contradictions and inconsistencies.
