Adding Integers (Haiku)
adding integers,
positive and negative,
adding with brackets.

Subtracting Integers (Haiku)
subtract integers,
never subtracting,
add the opposite.

Partitive Division (free verse)
is like dealing cards,
at times it can be hard.
once you know how many equal parts are in ,
2 groups when we have 6,
dealing cards will no longer be a jinx.

Quotative Division (free verse)
Quotative division is as simple as 1,2,3,
how many 2's are in 6 equally ?
the answer to this question is 3, obviously.

Make a rule (free verse)
when brackets kiss,
its a bad thing,
they multiply.
if you remember it,
your grades will fly,
if you want your grades to be high,
you must remember 2 simple rules,
when you multiply an odd amount of integers,
your product is a negative.
when you multiply an even amount of integers,
your product is a positive.
so just remember this,
when multiplying.
brackets kiss.

    Nice poems Avery!
    It's a bit late but I guess late is better than nothing handed in.
    I like your use of colour and your poems too.:)

    You did a very good job on the multiplying verse. but it was longer than all the others. It looks like you tried harder on the last part rather than trying the whole time.
