Adding Integers
Adding can be fun
if you understand it right
very simple math

Switch the oppsits
Unique math
But with many rules to follow
Teaches alot
Reaches its limits with makeing math easy
Allowing the use of adding in subtracing
Cant do it yet?
Try it, its easy
I manged to do it
Number by number
Growing on the skille of subtracting integers

Integers are easy
Now that we'vd learned
Taking it in
Enough for one day
Grow with the skills
Everyone was taught
Reaching our goals to make it easy
Subtracing integers are fun if you try

Pratts Law
so there is this girl
who came up with a rule
making math easy
for everyone to know

she wrote the rule down
on this great big board
teaching the world something new

as she wrote
she spoke with great words
"odd amounts of negitives always make a negitive"
"even amount of negitives always make a postive"

finished the rule with an acomplished look on face
knowing she taught something knew
make math easy
as possible as it gets.

Quotative Division
one day I was asked by a talking little tree
"how many twos were in six"
i stood there puzzled
not for filling my task
to awnser to question
that was put before me

i replied with a shrugg
and begain to walk off
the little tree called me back
and said they would teach me

i took up there offer and recoiled back
i sat down beside the little tree

as i watched i was amazed what i saw
3 large cirlces
with 2 little boxes in each

the tree had explained that
there were three two's in six

as i got up
i tahnk the little tree
for teaching me math
i now memorized like a rock.

Chapter 2

Philip: Hello there Dwight!
Dwight:(sigh) Hi Philip....
Philip:oh..whats wrong?
Dwight:I cant figure out this algebra equation
Philip:well then maybe I can help. Whats the question?
Dwight:I doubt it but you can give it a shot if you like.
Dwight: n+3-5n+1 , I can't figure it out!
Philip:Okay, so first, what do you think the awnser is?
Dwight: I keep getting -6n+15 but I don't know if it is right!
Philip: hhmm. That does not seem right. Let me check.....Okay!
Dwight: you got the awnser!?
Philip: yup! Well to start your awsner was wrong! the awnser is -4n+4.. Now let me show you how I got that. First you would rewrite the question and combine the like terms like so
"-5n+n+3+1" then you simplify! so you will end up with this "-4n+4" .
Dwight: Oh! now I see. Thanks Philip!
Philip: no problemo. See you later Dwight!
Dwight: Wait! . uhhmm Philip?
Philip:Yes Dwight?
Dwight: Uhhhmm.... coudl you help me with another one?
Philip:Of course!
Dwight:Alright heres the question 2 + 4(3n+8) .
Philip: ahhh... distributave property!
Dwight:exactly I just don't know how to do it! This is what I keep getting 12n + 10 , but im not sure about it.
Philip: hhhhmmm. well let me have a go at it. Ohh. I see where your going wrogn Dwight.
see the awnser would be 12n+34 silly.
Dwight: Oh! well how did you get that?
Philip:you see . what you were doing was ading 2 and 8. What you have to do its times 4 and 3 and you get 12n. and then times 4 and 8 and you get 32. so then you take the 2 and add it to 32. so you will end up with 12n+32. see!
Dwight: Ohhhh! I get it!
Philip: Exactly!

Dwight: Yes. Thank you Philip!
Philip: No problemo Dwight!

    Hi Katlyn ! I like your poems. They make a lot of sense, and they can help people about the headings. Also, I like the colours you chose. Your post stands out. But one thing, where is your partitive poem? Well anyways, you should work on that, and your post will become a lot better! Either than that, good job! Keep up the great work!
