Free verse-rules of mutiplying Integers
Sally oh Sally, this shy one
has never multiplyed an Integer
not even one.
she asked me if i knew how to do it,
i said yes dear lets get to it.
but Sally was a hopless one,
she dident want to learn, she just wanted to have fun.
But just when i thought there was no hope and was going to cry,
I decided to glimps upon the sky.
And in a split second i got a theory,
i will teach her about pratts law, so dearly!
So i told Sally if you add a negative amout of integers
that her product would be negative,
and that if she added a positive amount of integers her product
would be positive.
Oh yes Oh yes there was some hope,
I gave Sally a pen and paper and she did not mope!

Picture-Adding Integers

When you add a
negative integer and a
positive integer your
is a negative

Free verse-subtracting integers
Subtracting integers is oh so simple honey,
just think of it as useing money.
think of it as i have, i owe
now that i am done here i must go!!

how many, oposite of partative
easy, fast, correct,
makes life very easy,
memorizing, problem solving, efitient,
efitient, simple,

partative is fun
share equally into groups
count how much you have
see what your out come is and
record it onto your sheet

    I love your first free verse; but for Pratts Law you have that if you have a positive amount of integers it will be positive and if you have a negative amount of negative integers you will get a negative. It should be that if you have an EVEN amount of negative integers you will get a positive integer and if you have an ODD amount of negative integers you will get a negative integer.

    Hey Genia , I really liked your choice of colours. But then dont you think your font is to big. And i also agree with what Rayna said . Positive is even and Negative is odd.
