Today I received a gift. It’s a book called Ready, Set, Remember, published in 1978. I kid you not when I say that it teaches you multiplication in the following manner:
To determine what 4×6 is, rather than adding together four groups of six, you simply remember that “Rye(x)SHoe=NeRo.” As you can see, with this simple system, one can easily determine that the answer is 24. It may help to envision NeRo in a toga while playing the violin.

This book is now available to the general public, completely free of charge. You’ll find it sitting on or near the Franktuary bookshelf. Think of all the things you’ve forgotten without it! Franktuary –making downtown Pittsburgh better one book at a time.
