The Great Big Book Of Algebra

Thursday, December 4, 2008
Chapter 1 poetry:

Haiku/ - Adding Integers
Think about money
You owe and you get it back
you lost and you have

Haiku/ - Subtracting Integers
You never Subtract
You will add the opposite
Change the sign to add

Cinquain/ - Quotative Division (6 divided by 2)
Positive, Negative
Divide, Split, Half
Groups of 6 in 2
Ciquain/ - Partitive Division (6 divided by 2)
Parts, Groups
Have, In, Goes
Two groups equal Six

Free Verse/ - The "Rule for Multiplying" integers

When brackets kiss they multiply
And that is not a lie
Even if they die
Negative and Negative will always be Positive
Don't forgive if you forget
Positive and Positive will always be Positive
Don't forget to be really active
Negative and Positive will always be Negative
Same with Positive and Negative
It will be Negative
So give you self a clap and if you get it wrong
Run another lap
So good-luck and go out for Dinner!!!!

Lime "Hey Kevin"
Kevin "Hey Lime"
Kevin" Oh... Lime i have a question"
Lime "Yeah what is it?"
Kevin "I have an Algebra question, can you help me?"
Lime "Yeah sure what is it. I'm Smart i know a lot of things"
Kevin "Ya Right....I know their all LIES"!!
Lime "Fine, I'll Show you!!!"
Kevin "K well the question is n+3-5n+12?"
Kevin "ITS -6n+15 RIGHT?"
Lime "NO ITS NOT!!"
Kevin "OH ya!! Prove it!!"
Lime "K you see..Their are 2 terms!! its the N, -5n and 3,12."
Lime "When you put the 1 term in one basket. (N and -5n)."
Lime "K so its N-5n, and N equals 1. So its 1n-5n"
Lime " and so the answer is -4n and 3+12 equals 15"
Lime " SO its -4n+15 "
Lime " I was just warming up"
Kevin "OOH Wow Lime"
Kevin" K if your warming up than what is 2 + 4(3n+8)?"
Lime " Ha, its 12n+34"
Kevin " How? I bet its wrong because my answer was 12N+10 "
Lime " no it isn't "
" because 4 x 3n is Equal 12n."
Lime " And 4 x 8 equal 32"
Lime " And last 32 + 2 equals 34"
Lime "So their you have it. The answer is 12n+34"
Kevin "K thanks Lime for all your work"
Lime "Ha Ha No problem"
Kevin " Ha Ha i guess you are smart"

    Great job, Vincent. Your poems are so good. I love how you didnt use the same types of poems over and over. And it is great that you rhymed the words on the last poem. Wow, it was colourful!

    I think I'm done commenting here.

    And once again great job! ☺

    Glub glub glub ...
    Anyway, I like your poems! THEY'RE GOOD! Seperating each poem type with a different colour was a good idea. The colours were well chosen, because they compliment one another. I think that if I could change one thing about your poems, I would make widen your variety of poem types. You've only got the minimum amount! Come on! Explore your possibilities! Don't restrain yourself, man! Anyways, I was being 'helpful'.
    I think that the best poem was the Free Verse one. The rhyming makes learning math FUN FUN FUN! And it'll probably be a lot more helpful to the people who don't really understand math. KUDOS, YO!
