Now we get to the math for today, we had to do our green booklet that Mr. Harbeck gave us about 1 week ago and we had to do some parts 2 and part 3 on the next page.

We had to do learn Standard form in Integers rule and there are only 3 so here they are:

1) Never Subtract(add the opposite)

2)Regroup and Re-write

3)Have (1 +) and have (1 -)

That means in the end before you get the total you should have 1 group of positive integers and 1 group of negative integers.

Now we have our homework for today we did some of Part 2 and do the odds and Part 3 which is on the next page of the booklet. Now here are 2 questions on part 2 and 2 questions on part 3, here is part 2:

Question 3 on part 2:

8-(-4)+7-(-2)=

this is where the rules kick in to see if you are doing the process right:

So for question 3 Part 2 the answer is 21 now here is another question

Question #5 in part 2 it is:

12-(-3)+6-9

if you re-write that it should look like this:12+(+3)+6-9=

12+3+6-9=

21-9=12so 12 is the answer for question # 5 if you already did that question.

Now this brings us to part 3 it is a lot more confusing but its very easy if you do your steps correct, I'm going to do question 2 and question 10 so here is question #2

Question 2 in part 3 it is:

Now this brings us to part 3 it is a lot more confusing but its very easy if you do your steps correct, I'm going to do question 2 and question 10 so here is question #2

Question 2 in part 3 it is:

(8-11)-(4-5)=

(-3)+(-1) re-written with brackets

-3-1 re-written with no brackets

(-3)+(-1) re-written with brackets

-3-1 re-written with no brackets

The answer is -4 on part 3 question number 2 okay now for the last question, question #10 and it looks like this:

Question 10 part 3 it is

-(-2+8)+(-3-4)=

+(+10)+(-7) with brackets

10-7 with no brackets and it equals 3

so the answer to number 10 on part 3 is 3. So that was for homework just the green booklet and also the is a quiz on Thursday about this I think so you better be prepared!!

Question 10 part 3 it is

-(-2+8)+(-3-4)=

10-7 with no brackets and it equals 3

so the answer to number 10 on part 3 is 3. So that was for homework just the green booklet and also the is a quiz on Thursday about this I think so you better be prepared!!

chinn2said...Heey Jay, heres my comment. You did a very good job. but, on the "integer rule" part. Its a little confusing, when you read the rules it looks like its in one sentence. And you did a very good job on one picture but thats your only picture. You should've put pictures on most of the questions. Im not sure, but i think your also suppose to include the questions that we had talked about in class. And yeah, other than that it was really awesome (: oh, add more colours on the fonts.

Lissa 8-16said...Hi jay ! Well, I think your post was really nice. You put like math words and your made it sound so smart. Um, I think when you are listing the rules your supposed to do to solve the integer question properly you should put it like this :

1) type the rule and enter

2) type the rule and enter

3) type the rule and enter

I think its better to do it like that because its easier to read. I think thats all you have to do next time .. OH WAIT , make it more colourful :D Well , yours was great that so GOOD JOB!
