Today in class, we went over questions from yesterday's homework, that people had difficulties with. For example, one of those questions were Question #10, in Part Three. People found this question difficult, because there is a subtraction sign by itself in the beginning of the question.

But before I explain how to solve Question #10, I'll go over the steps on how to solve questions that have more than one integer in the brackets.


Okay, now I'll explain how to do Question #10, in Part Three.

After Mr. Harbeck went through all those questions, he taught us how to solve questions that have discountonall square brackets. Those brackets look like these --> [ ]

When solving these kinds of questions, the steps are a little different, compared to the steps on how to solve questions with more than one integer in the brackets.

1. solve inside the round brackets

2. solve inside the square brackets

*when you've finished solving inside the square brackets, you should be left with only one integer*

3. rewrite the question
  • keep the brackets
  • pull down all the order of operation signs

4. get rid of the "uh-oh's" by changing it into an addition sign

5. rewrite the question in standard form

6. solve

These are two examples of questions that have square brackets.

Example #1 -


Example #2 -


For homework, we need to finish Part Four, and Page 12 (AKA last page). Also, you need to pick any 10 questions from Pg. 12, and in your scribbler, rewrite them in standard form.
That's about everything we did in class today.
For tomorrow's scribe, I pick Zerlina.
Thanks for reading my scribe, and please leave a comment (:

Good job Melanie. It really made sense when you used the big fonts and lots of colour. You explained it well. I also liked how you explained the square brackets.
