### Scribepost for November 14th, 2008.

Sunday, November 16, 2008
I want to get my scribe done and over with :) Don't just scroll all the way to the bottom please, just read it and ... comment if it doesn't make sense? :) I kind of didn't know what to do at first, so it might not make sense to what Mr. Harbeck did? HAHA, okay then. Long enough introduction.

(This might be the 'new stuff'.)
ORDER OF OPERATIONS:

You can't group the positive or negative integers together in a multiplication question, to make it easier. You HAVE TO go in order. Whatever is written first must go first in the order of operations. Multiply the integers in the brackets FIRST. After you multiply the 2 together, bring the adding sign down. Then add the question altogether to get the answer.
FOR EXAMPLE?
-3(6) - (2)(-4) =
-18 - -8 =
-18 + +8 = 10
BOX..ES:
<>
eew, H O M E W O R K :
In the green booklet, on page six (COMBINING MULTIPLICATION WITH ADDITION AND SUBTRACTION) , do questions 1 to 9 in your notebook. Remember to show your work, I hope what my scribe says, kind of taught you to show your work .. well? :)
Well okaay then, I think i'm done my scribepost? Am I missing anything, Harbeck? :) Hopefully not! HAHA , yeeah i'm not going to 'break the chain' you guys :) I want to pick a guy for the scribe, I don't even know why .. o.O The next scriber is... SEAN! Sorry, but I had no one to choose. They didn't want to be scriber and they were blahblahblah... So yeah :D Have fun!

Hey! Good work on your post. It totally made sense. I remember learning order of operations and at first it was confusing and weird, but it quickly becomes second nature.
Nice diagrams too - the box method was really well described. The colours really helped keep things nice and clear.
Keep it up! :)

Well done on this post! The different colors used in your diagrams really help your explanation! It seems as if you have a really good understanding on order of operations.

Keep up the excellent work!
