This video gives a method to convert decimal numbers to binary numbers quickly. This is a variation of the remainder system that is typically taught in courses. I like this method because it gives the answer in the correct order from left to right. Proof of why it works: http://math.stackexchange.com/questions/86207/converting-decimalbase-10-numbers-to-binary-by-repeatedly-dividing-by-2 I also give a proof
Some people say this is “how the Japanese multiply.” Others say this is “Vedic Math.” I’m not sure of the origin, but this is a visual way to multiply two numbers and it does work. The video also shows how to use the same method to multiply algebraic expressions like (x + 2)(x + 3).

Here’s how you do cube roots in your head! Avoid looking like Education Secretary Nicky Morgan who was stumped when asked to do a cube root: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=x8CV0dfQMdU Note: the starting number needs to be a perfect cube.
