Chinese Multiplication (Napier's Bones)
This is an exceptionally effective method of multiplying very large numbers with ease. I would not recommend it for pupils who are just starting to learn multiplication because the method is not underpinned by an understanding of place value, but for pupils who understand number well, this method is likely to enable them to calculate much more effectively than the standard written method of long multiplication.
