Here’s
a twist for multiplication!  a fun way to practice multidigit problems.
The idea is to assign a number to each letter of the alphabet and then
figure out “number names.”
Here’s your alphabet/number
chart:
Now take a short name
and fit the numbers to the letters. Let’s try Bob.
How about a longer name?
Let’s try Annie.
Here are some names for you to try: Suzie
(answers are at the end of this lesson)
Now multiply all your friend’s names. Use your number names as code names for signing private messages. Variation: Multiply
the alphabet numbers in different orders, not just left to right. You will
note that the answer remains constant.
Answers: Suzie = 466,830
