I am not sure about MegaMath, but what Scott has taught in the past seems
(although different). The only thing I am familiar with is how he teaches

Basically he approaches it from LEFT to RIGHT instead of the traditional
right to left

IE. 193
+ 210
start as 1+5+2=8 100's=800
then 9+1 = 10 ten's = 1 100 = 900
then 3+7 = 10 ones = 1 10 = 910

Hope this help's
