We will continue with different ways to multiplying 2 numbers. This week we will look at Russian Peasant Multiplication, which, surprisingly, has no relation to Russia or Peasants. However, this will be another good way to show the students how to write numbers as sum of powers of 2

This week we started off class discussing "I cut you choose." We then continued will be continuing our discussion of subtraction games, in particular the Game 21. With 21 sticks, each player can either take away 1,2, or 3 sticks each turn, what is the winning strategy if you don't want to take the last stick? If you want to take the last one? How are these two related?
