Tracy's Integer story

Friday, October 24, 2008
It was a bright sunny day when the Backyardigans were all out in the yard. "What should we do today?" asked Austin to his friends. "I know we should go play in the playground." yelled Uniqua. They all thought that a trip to the playground would be a good idea. So they all left to go to the playground. Once they arrived at the playground they noticed a big gate blocking the way. It was locked and there was a big sign that said "Attention, all playground visitors you must answer this math question before entering the playground.

Tasha walked closer to the gate and noticed a big shiny red button. She pressed the button and there appeared the math question that they had to answer. The math question read... "(-15)+(+5)=__." "I know the answer !" exclaimed Tasha. She pressed the correct answer and then the gate opened. "Yay, you did it Tasha!." Yelled the Backyardigans with excitement, and they all ran to the playground.

Once they were at the playground Pablo wanted to play on the swings. He walked closer to the swings but realized he had to answer another math problem enable to go on the swings. He pressed the big shiny red button and there appeared his math question. "(-12)+(+14)=__." It took Pablo a few minutes before he finally got the answer. He pressed the correct answer and got on the swings. He was so happy that he got the answer right.

Tyrone wanted to go on the monkey bars but they were guarded by birds. "May I please play on the monkey bars?" asked Tyrone to the birds. The birds told him that he needed to answer their math question and then they will let him on the monkey bars. "What is my math question?" asked Tyrone. The birds replied. "Your math question is (-13)+(-2)+(+7)=__." Tyrone told the birds hi answer. You are correct said the birds and they all flew away leaving the monkey bars to Tyrone.

It was the middle of the day, and the Backyardigans were super tired and they all wanted to go home. So they were about to leave the playground when they realized they were locked in the park. The gate was locked and they saw the big shiny red button. They all pressed it together and there appeared their last math question. (-10)+(-10)+(+1)=__. They all pressed the correct answer together. Then the gate opened, and they finally went home. When they got home they were all talking about how much fun they had even though they had to answer math problems.

CONTINUATION !

When the Backyardigans got home the started to get hungry, so they planned to eat cookies. Pablo decided to play integer games with the cookies. Pablo asked asked Tyrone "What is (+6) - (+3)=__? Tyrone thought for awhile and he said. The answer to that interger question is +3 said Tyrone. Pablo said, Wow you got that answer really fast. How did you figure it out asked Pablo? Then Tyrone explained it in a picture.

Pablo asked Uniqua what if I ask you a question almost like Pablos. But I will try to make it harder for you. Here is your question (+8) - (-2) + (+1) - (-4)=__? What is the answer asked Pablo? Uhmm, let me think said Uniqua. She thinked about five minutes until she got the answer. Uniqua yelled "I got it, I got it!" The answer is +15 she yelled out loud. Then Pablo said bravo you got it right! Uniqua was so happy that she got to integer quesion right.

After Tyrone and Uniqua answered their interger question they went to eat there cookies. Yuumm delicious they said. Then all of them waited for another adventure to come.
THE END!
