### Kristin's Big Book of Algebra

**Chapter 1 :**

*Integer poetry*

Adding Integers - Haiku

Adding integers

Positives and negatives

Cancel each other

Partitive Division - Free Verse

Partitive division

Is like dealing cards

How many equal parts

Are in two groups

When we have

Negative six?

Subtracting Integers - Tanka

It does not exist

Instead, add the opposite

Then add normally

Subtracting integers is

Not hard now that you know how

Quotative Division - Haiku

How many groups of

Positive seven are in

Positive fourteen?

Rules for Multiplying - Free Verse

When multiplying integers

And there is an even amount of

Negative integers, or no negative integers

The product is positive

If there is an odd amount

Of negative integers

The product is negative

Thanks for reading!

**Chapter Two:**

**Combining like terms and the Distributive Property**

*Hi! Just so you know(if you didn't already), my characters are Sakka and Momo(I know he's a lemur) from Avatar. Also(again, if you didn't already know) Sakka in a guy.*

Sakka: Hi Momo!

Momo: Hey Sakka!

Sakka: Hey Momo, I was wondering.... Is

**n+3-5n+12**simplified,**-6n+15**?Momo: AHAHAH! Ha ha ha lol ha ha!

Sakka: Waaa! If I'm wrong just tell me!

Momo: You're wrong.

Sakka: Waaa!What did I do wrong?

Momo: You added the positive n to the negative 5n instead of canceling(zero pairs).

Sakka: Well then, what should I have done?

Momo: Well first you regroup it. It would then be n-5n+3+12.

Sakka: Ok...

Momo: Then you add the variables and the integers. So n-5n would be -4n, and 3+12 is 15. So it would be -4n+15.

Sakka: Wow! You can solve anything!

Mom: Well yes. Almost...

Sakka: Can you help me with this question? 2+4(3n+8).

Momo: Well first I multiply the 3n and the 8 by 4 because the 4 was touching the bracket. Then I brought down the two and got 2+12n+32.

Sakka: That makes sense.

Momo: Next I combine the like terms, so it will be

Sakka: Yeah...

Momo: Which means my final simplified answer is

Sakka: What?! How did you get that? I thought it was 12n + 10?

Momo: Oh, you must have forgotten to multiply the 8. Its ok.

Sakka: Please don't tell Katara.

Momo: sigh, fine.

Momo: Which means my final simplified answer is

**12n+34.**Sakka: What?! How did you get that? I thought it was 12n + 10?

Momo: Oh, you must have forgotten to multiply the 8. Its ok.

Sakka: Please don't tell Katara.

**Chapter 3**

Hi there! These are the questions I chose to do:

- Additive - 6+n = 9
- Subtractive - -3 = -6+n
- Multiplicative - 2n = 10
- Divisive - n/3 = 4

Remember, what you do to one side, you must do to the other.

**Additive - **6+n = 9

**Subtractive - **-3 = -6+n

M**ultiplicative - **2n = 10

**Divisive -** n/3 = 12

**Chapter 4**

Yay! It's our video! I really hope you enjoy watching it. Sorry for all the mistakes. I did not get enough sleep. \(-_-\)

Again, sorry for the mistakes in the video, but I really hoped you enjoyed watching it and reading my post. If my computer miraculously lets me put the video up then I will, but until then thanks for reading!
