**Chapter 1: Integer Poetry**

Adding Integers (Haiku):

Increase the total

Two numbers becoming one

coming together

Subtracting Integers (Picture):

When you have money$$$$$$$

Don't even play with this math!

When you do, say buh-bye.........

Partitive Division (Free Verse):

Partitive Division

Used for dividing

In quadrant one or two

To use this technique

Just ask one simple question

That I think your math teacher should know

If he doesn't and you come to me

I'll scream in your ear and say

Look at your barn doors

Good grief

Quotative Division (Diamante):

Quotative

Fun, simple

Circling, counting, drawing

Learn, to pass school

Question, think, answer

Math, art

Division

Ron's Rule (Free Verse):

If your a negative integer

And you want to dance the multiplication pop

Learn from the master of cool

That created Ron's Rule

His name is unknown pogi

He might teach you for some candy

If you throw in a chocolatebar

You might be there listening

To him rapping out this old saying

You need to have an even number of negative integers

If you don't have that, you're just plain queer

When you do have that simple need

The crowd is sure to give

You a positive applause

Don't even think to go learn from

Pratt's Law or Mel's Rockpile

Cause there's only one

Multiplication pop

**Chapter 2: Combining Like Terms and the Distributive Property**

Fred: Hi

Jack: Sup

Fred: Are you ready for the math test tommorow?

Jack: I was born ready! Did you study?

Fred: No, I forgot to. I was out partying last night.

Jack: Billy Bob's party?

Fred: Yeah.

Jack: Well, I was studying last night. You should start studying now.

Fred: Of course, lets begin.

Jack: After an hour of studying. Are you ready now?

Fred: Yeah, I probably know everything already.

Jack: I bet you a dollar that you'll get this question wrong.

Fred: Sure, more money for me.

Jack: Okay, how about an algebra question?

Fred: Bring it on!

Jack: Hmmmm, n+3-5n+12. Simplify that question.

Fred: That's -6n+15.

Jack: Wrong! You just made one little mistake. This is how you answer it.

n+3-5n+12

n-5n+3+12

-4n+15

Fred: Oh, I get it now. I multiplied n with -5n, instead of adding them together.

Jack: Hooray, I get a dollar! Now, try this question 2+4(3n+8). Simpilfy it again.

Fred: Is it 12n+10?

Jack: You made the same type of mistake. This time you multipled the 2 with 3n, instead of

4 with 3n. I'll just explain the whole thing.

2+4(3n+8)

2+12n+32

34+12n

Fred: Yes! I finally understand! It's a miracle, I can simplify algebra things. I forgot what they

call those things.

Jack: So, your good for the test?

Fred: Yeah, you know how I roll. This is a very touching moment for me. I'm so lucky to

have a friend like you.

Jack: I love you to man!

Fred: Okay, don't go to far with it. HaHa!

Jack: Well I'm going to go home to get some sleep now.

Fred: Okay, peace out bro.

Jack: Peace.

Fred: At school, the next day, after the math test. Hey, Jack how was your math test?

Jack: I think I aced it. How was yours?

Fred: Same here, just because I studied yesturday.

Jack: Yeah, well I need to go to my next class now. See you at Joseph's party?

Fred: Yup, I'll see you there.

Jack: Bye

The video:

Isolate the variable(2n/2), balance the sides(10/2), answer, and verify.

Isolate the variable(n/2 times 2) Balance the scale(5 times 2), answer, verify.

Isolate the variable(10-10), balance ot the sides(5-10), multiply both sides by (-1), verify.
