Scribe Post November 21/08

Friday, November 21, 2008
Hey guys! Today in class we reviewed the "barn door" that shows us how to divide negative and negative integers. In the barn door that expresses us how to divide negative and negative integers we did another question. The question was 12/4.

First we had to express it in two different ways.

Next we had to make a QUOTATIVE and PARTITIVE questions and draw pictures. Quotative does not work for this question.

Quotative does not work for that question because you can not make groups of positive 4s in negative 12 and the answer for that question is 3.

For the fourth quadrant we had to do the question 6/-2, we had to express it in two different ways:

For homework we had to do questions 1-9 in the green booklet. We had to pick 6 questions that fits into our barns, draw 3 of them and do the multiplicative inverse for all of them. We also have to put the quotative and partitive sentences with the question. We have to put it in our notebooks.

Here is an answer for one of the nine questions we had to answer:

The next scribe shall be JOYSIE!

    Hi Nikki! I really liked the way you expressed important words like QUOTATIVE and PARTITIVE by putting them all capital and colored. As far as I'm concerned, there weren't any mistakes at all. I also liked the way you explained our homework because I wasn't really sure how we were suppose to do it! Good Job! :)

    Awesome Scribe, Nikki. I liked how you expressed the lesson and homework. I also liked your use of colour on you important words.

    I cannot find any errors on your scribe, because it was so well done. It must of taken you a while to create a perfect scribe. I admirer your effort.

    Great Job, Nikki! ☺

    And Thanks for choosing me as the next scribe.

    Nice job Nikki! As everyone else said this scribe was perfect as far as I can tell, however, you missed a part of the homework. You forgot to say that we need to write either Q or P (they represent Quotative and Partitive) and then write how the sentence that would go with it for example with your example (question 2) you would use the Quotative because Partitive doesn't work with -,- questions. Which means you'd write this in your notebook: Q How many -1's are in -5? and then you'd do the other things as well (a pictoral if you pick this question and the multiplicative inverse). As I said before good job and add the other homework A.S.A.P. so that other people will know that it's homework.

    It's Gizzle again! I did find one mistake. On the last picture of our homework which was 2. -5/-1 = +5, you put that it was question 2 but it is question 4. I know its not that big of a deal but it may confuse some people. Over all job well done like I've said on my first comment.
