Friday, October 24, 2008
Once upon a time there was a boy named Smitty. He was a very odd boy. He knew things. Very strange things. Their was a rumor that he wasn't from earth. That was true, but he never told anyone. One day he was at school, in math class, his teacher was teaching them about integers. Smitty was very smart so he learned it quickly. After school he felt something was happening in his real world. All of a sudden he summoned a vortex and he jumped in it. He ended up in a mystical world. It was called Math Bottom. Math was very popular here. He went home and his parents were there. They all used magic. His dad Smitty Sr. told him that he had to go on a quest. His dad said that they had discovered something. They discovered that somewhere in their world there is a magical wand. Whoever harnesses it will instantly become the most powerful being in the universe. Smitty accepted the quest, but after he gets a good night rest.

Smitty woke up. He asked his dad where to start. He said to start at the forest near the river. Smitty left and went to the forest. There was a gate there. He couldn't get passed it. Then a little fairy popped up. Smitty asked if she could open the gate. The fairy said he had to answer a simple math question. The question is (-5) + (+6). Smitty already knew this. He learned in his math class. Smitty knew the answer right away. He used money to answer the question. He answered (+1).The fairy said he could enter, but first the fairy asked if he was going on a quest. Smitty said yes. The fairy told him to go into the deep into the forest until he sees a ocean. Smitty followed her directions.

He started to walk. There was many trees surronding him. he heard lots of strange noises, but he ignored them. The ocean he saw was far away. All of a sudden something jumped on him. He fell on the ground. It was a mutant creature. Smitty asked why it jumped on him. It said he can't get past that point until he answers a simple question. The question is (+9) + (-9). Smittty used a algebra tiles to answer this question. Smitty anwsered 0. The creature said correct. Smitty carried on with his quest.

Smitty finally got to the ocean. He didn't know how to get across the ocean, until another fairy popped up. Smitty asked the fairy how to get across the ocean? The fairy said she will tell him after he answers 1 question. The question is (-3) + (-3). Smitty used a number line to answer this. Smitty answered (-6). The fairy grabbed his hand and they started to fly across the ocean. the fairy dropped down to the other side and disappeared.

Smitty sees a large cave. Smitty walked inside. There was a little frog sitting there. The frog started to talk. It said to go to the deepest point of the cave and there will be an exit. He went further into the cave. Out of no where a huge cage drops on top of him. He was trapped. Then a bat came flying down. The bat turned into a vampire. The vampire said if he wants to get out he has to answer a question. The question was (-2) + (-8). Smitty answered (-10). The cage disappered and the vampire turned into a bat, and flew away.
