Subject: alternative ways to mulitply


As a fifth grade teacher, I look for a variety of ways to teach 
multiplication.  I'm familiar with the standard algorithm, lattice, 
partial product and the box method.  I've heard about the "bowtie" method, 
but I can't seem to find anything about it.  Could you please explain how 
this method works?
