Is there a way that this material could be transformed to teach it to students in a classroom.

In watching this presentation it caused me to think that if I could show students how to do these calculations quickly it might be the key to inspiring them to try and do better in mathematics. I have not purchased is book as yet. I work with Independent Study students and many of them have problems with knowing the times tables up to 10. My thought is that if they could learn and do some of these mathemagical calculations it might give them confidence to tackle higher maths and help them with things like Algebra and Geometry where loads of calculations need to be learned. Any thoughts or idea will be greatly appreciated.
