Scribe Post for November 05,2008

Wednesday, November 5, 2008
In class we did something new, we made a book. The Book we made kind of looked like this...

In this book, we learned how to multiply integers. There was two examples that Mr.Harbeck and Mr.Backe showed us. The first example was under square one(++)...
Now, do you know how to answer this question? Well, just in case, here's one thing you should remember:
  • When two brackets touch you should always multiply

  • For this question, it's two groups of three

After you've done everything in the book I have just said it should look like this...

The second example Mr.Harbeck and Mr.Backe showed us was in square 2(-+) and the question was...




Now, do you know how to answer this kind of question? Well i'll show you how to do it. Since you've already seen the first example you should already know that when two brackets touch you always multiply right? Well this has the same rule but there is an added rule. First in (-2)(+3) the "-" means remove and the "2" means two groups and the"3" means of positive 3. So altogether it's remove two groups of positive three. So it should look like this...


And after you've done all of this the book should now look like this...


Now after you've done this there was homework, but it's fairly simple. All you have to do is create two other questions for (++) and(-+) but they don't they have to be hard. Just make questions that can be answered using the rules i talked about.

I think I made a few mistakes in my post so if you see any please leave a comment so I can fix it.


The next scribe poster is going to be one my buddies! So i'll choose....Patrick! Purple...I know right? His favorite colour :P

    Nice Scribe Marc! Its very good. i like the pictures. but it'll be better if you made it a little bigger, because no one can actually see the words and questions on the picture. And if you made the rules on the paragraphs in different colour so it will be easy to see. but other than that you did a very good job. OH OH, what? patrick's favourite colour is PURPLE? oh wow, COOL :D

    I think that your scribe post is very good. I agree with chinn2 who said that the pictures could be a little bigger. It might help both you and the rest of the class, especially when you are studying for the final unit test.
