Title: The Pessimist (Subtraction)
I'm a pessimist
You'll find me the most fiercest.
Just make me happy,
And give zero pairs to me.
Then your problem will be solved...

Title: Mocking Kid (partitive division)
Once upon a time,
When words doesn't rhyme,
A kid asked a question,
That will give you confusion.
He said, "Can you answer my dreading question?"
I answered back "Any question, I'm the best person!
He said mockingly, " Really?"
He took out a piece of paper, so crinkly.
Written on it is PARTITIVE DIVISION.
That sounds common.
I knew the answer right in my head.
If that kid mocks me again he would be dead.
"Partitive division is like playing a card game,
Giving equal amount of cards to your comrade."
"Now I get it, thanks!" he said leaving.
"You're welcome." I said waving.

Title: The Kid of Destruction and Question (quotative division)
In the world of geniuses,
A kid caused destruction.
That caused everyone drudges.
So I went into action.
I talked to it, having no fear.
It only want to ask a question!
I listened to it with both ears.
It said, "Six divided by two!"
I know the answer in my head too.
It said, "Answer it using quotative division."
I replied, "No problem, I learned this in grade two!"
"You just have to write a sentence like this...
... How many twos are in six?"
"Oh, so it's like finding how many twos can fit in six?" it said.
" You got it." I pled.
" Thank you very much!" It said.
"Your welcome." I replied.
So, then it fled...
Far way to cause destruction.

Chapter Two: Script
Larten: How's it going?
Arra: I'm fine, except for one thing.
Larten: What is it, I'll be happy to help.
Arra: I forgot how to combine like terms and distributive property.
Larten: I'll teach you.
Arra: n+ 3 -5n +12
Larten: I'll let you answer it first.
Arra: I think the answer is -6n + 15
Larten: -4n + 15
Arra: What's my mistakes and steps?
Larten: First, you have to circle the like terms, then rewrite the statement. Finally, simplify.
Arra: You forgot to tell me my mistakes.
Larten: You forgot to take the negative sign with the five. So instead of -5n and n it's 5n and n.
Arra: Now let's move on to the distributive property.
Larten: Come on I don't have time!
Arra: I'm hurrying!
Larten: Guess what's the answer first.
Arra: 12n+ 10
Larten: First, identify the terms, then multiply the terms.
Arra: Ok then.
Larten: I think that you only multiplied 4 and 3n, you forgot to multiply 8 and four. So, you probably added 8 and 2.
Arra: It's so easy!
Larten: You're welcome.
