The case will be made that Multiplication is NOT repeated addition, though repeated addition is of course an instance of multiplication. Participants will be invited to engage in tasks which expose some of the mathematical subtleties of multiplication. In particular we will look at scaling and the contexts in which it is, and is not commutative.
