Chapter 1.

Adding Integers (Haiku)

Adding Integers

a way of mathematics

combine integers

Subtracting Integers (Picture Poem)

Partitive Division (Free Verse)

Partitive Division

it's really not that hard

all you have to have is a deck of cards

you divide them fairly

each to everyone

once you have no more then you are done

Quotative division (Haiku)

Dividing, fitting

numbers into equal groups

a special number

The "Rule for Multiplying" Integers (Free Verse)

Multiplying is not that hard

as long as u have Mel's rock pile

when ever there's and even amount of integers

the answer will be positive

when there's an odd number of integers

the answer will be negative

it's very simple

so always keep it in your mind

Chapter 2.

Combining like terms and the Distributive Property

Combining like terms and the Distributive Property

Dell:Hey Mat whatcha doing?

Mat:Oh nothing just trying to finish my math homework for tomorrow.

Dell:Oh really do you need any help?

Mat:Well on this question n+3-5n+12 do you know it? i don't really get it.

Dell:hmmm.. oh i think its -6n+15 im pretty shure.

Mat:oh really how, did you get it?

Dell:oh well first I regrouped it so that the variable is with the variable like this, n-5n+3+12.

Mat:oh okay.

Dell:Then i added the variables together like this, n+-5n which equaled, -4n, because the n still counted as a number which was one.

Mat:Oh i think im catching on.

Dell:then i added the positive 3 to positive 12 which was 15. So my answer would be -4 +15.

Mat:Oh isn't that different from the first one you showed me?

Dell:Oh your right im sorry the one i just told you right now is write. well if you need any more help just tell me.

Mat:Well there is one more.

Dell:Oh really which one?

Mat:Oh um this one its, 2 + 4(3n+8)

Dell:Oh that one is really easy.

Mat:oh really can u help me then?

Dell:Oh well the answer is 12n + 10.

Mat:oh but how did you get that because tomorrow we will be marking the homework, and he said i had to answer the questions.

Dell:Oh first i rearranged the +2 to the back like this 4 (3n+8)+2

Mat:oh ok

Dell:then i had to multiply the four to the numbers in the brackets like this, 4 times 3n Which equals 12n because you always have to bring the variable. then i multiplied 3 to 8 which equaled 24. Then i added the 2 at the back to the 24 because, it had no variable. Which equaled 26. you get the answer of 12n +26

Mat:Oh really that sounds so easy. but that isn't the answer you told me earlier.

Dell:OH! you are right the first answer i told you was wrong. sorry, but do you understand how to answer it?

Mat:Oh it 's OK, and ya i get it thanks a lot!

Dell:no problem! but hey i have to go its almost 8 and my mom is gonna be looking for me.

Mat:oh OK well thanks a lot and Bye

Dell:OK Bye
