Yesterday in class we did INTEGERS in STANDARD FORM.

There are Three Step when you are doing INTERGERS in STANDARD FORM and you have to follow them OR ELSE.

The first Step is: You have to get rid of the uh ohs

For example:

-6-8-(-2)+3-(-6)=

It has a zero pair.

<------ oh look we got rid of the zero pair

Next step is: You have to rewrite the question without the zero pairs

-8+2+3= ??

First you add 2+3= 5

Then you put the 5 and the -8

It will look like this -----> -8+5=-3

and that is how you do integers in standard form..

ok maybe you are all wondering who the next scribe is.. well i am going to pick Jordan... have fun being the next scribe

Nicole VanCaeseelesaid...Good post on stating the rules that you need to follow. To make your scribe a bit more effective and easier for students to understand you may want to use more examples, just a suggestion for next time.

Anonymoussaid...Good job, but you have a spelling error. You spelt 'integers' wrong, you put 'intergers'. You might want to fix that up.
