In class we learned about how to subtract integers
But execpt you dont subtract you ADD THE OPPOSITE.
for example:(-8)-(+2)

You never are the answers to pg46

k, Well today in Harbeck's class we have been learning about integers, just today was different because he gave us a booklet that didn't have brackets around each integer "Inetegers in standard form" That meant we had to learn all this new stuff, I personally thought it was standard enough but anyway

-4 -3=-7 6+8=14

owe 4 owe 3= -7 have 6 have 8= 14

When Do You Add The Opposite ?



pretty much whenever you have to negatives or "uhhh ooos" i think ?

you guy if anyone even lokks at

this can get the answers from john

or carlos i think any way i

feel like poo soo good night

p.s. i couldnt get pictures so i

did the best i could with the

font sizes an that stuff

Today at October 30 2008 in class at period 3 we just got a green booklet but it wasn't an ordinary booklet, it was a booklet of integers. And in that integer booklet, there were problems, subtraction and addition. But they were not any ordinary problems, they were simple and straight forward problems but with no training wheels or brackets if you prefer. Now here is a hint for all y'all people, if you see a bracket in a problem with two integers it's just tricking you. but if you see a bracket in a three or more integers in a question y'all just have to do the simple rules of the addition or subtraction problem. If y'all just look at the bottom of this paragraph.

Dudes here's another.

If I get anything missing please hesitate, do anything to it, reorganize it, a 10% to comment it, do something to it, just do it! Now I'm done.

Today in class we learned how to not to use training pants! Mr.Harbeck gave us a new green booklet. The integer questions in this booklet are written in standard form. He told us that we have to combine the integers to solve them. Here's an example:

When do you add oposites? When there are "Training wheels". For example:

Here are a few answers from the green booklet:

Part I

13. 6 - 9 = -3

15. 5 - 12 = -7

16. -8 + 3 = -5

Part II

3. 8 - (-4) + 7 - (-2) = 21

5. 12 - (-3) + 6 - 9 = 12

7. -8 - (-2) + 7 - 12 = -11

Hello! So today in class we were doing integers in standard form AKA, NO MORE TRAINING PANTS! In standard form we combine integers.



* Make it an adding question.


-8+2+7-12 = -11

* No bracets ! ;0 UH OH! No training pants.



-20+9 = -11
* Collect ( + ) and ( - ) together.

Homework for today :
Green Book

Part One - All.
Part Two - Even questions only.

* We did 1, 2, 3 & 14 in class!

Braden's measures of central tendency


arrange all the data in ascending order and then add up all the numbers and divide it by how many numbers there are. Mean is less accurate.


arrange all the data in ascending order and find the middle number if there is two middle numbers divide them by 2. good if theres an outlier.


arrange the data in ascending order and find the number that appears the most. You can also have more than one mode or you can have no mode at all.


arrange the data in ascending order and subtract the largest data from the smallest data

Hello my class mates! :)
Well today in class we had a integer quiz then Mr. Harbeck gave us a new book that is green! And he put on the smart board in BIG letters, STANDARD FORM! aka NO MORE TRAINING PANTS!

He explained that in standard form we combine integers or " put them all into one basket" .
we were asked to do the first 3 questions on the new green book : 6+8= , -4-3=, 15-2=
6+8=14 I have 6 I have 8

But wait what is missing AND! no more and ! Mr. H told us to look at the question like this :

so that we see 2 integers I have 6 I have8
-4-3=-7- again owe 4 owe 3 = owe 7


Not in this case do we have to use brackets
ok that is my scribe for today Bye :)

heeello , (:
So, Today in math we had a 10-15 minute integer test by the time the test was done and over with Mr Harbeck gave us a "green" booklet, and just told us to forget about the "yellow" booklet for now. Inside of the "green" booklet there is integer questions some with brackets: example: 11 - (8)= 3 aka.. ( ) Training Wheels, and some without the brackets. Also in class we were doing the integers in standard form which means (NO MORE TRAINING PANTS!!). (:
in standard form all we do is "combine integers"
like this (:

Correct Question: -4 -3= -7

Wrong Question: -4 - (-3)=7


* make it into a addition question.


here's a example :

okay well that's my scribe , oh and if I made a mistake well then I'm sorry (:

In today's class, we learned how to add and subtract integers in standard form. In standard form we combine integers. For example, -4-3= -7. It's owe 4, owe 3. As you can see, there are no more "training wheels". You also DON'T add the opposites.
Then when do you add the opposites? You add the opposite when there are two "owes".

To get the answer in less confusing way, just collect them together or group like terms.

For today's homework, we got a new booklet that's green. On the first page, we do all the questions in part one and all the even numbers in part two.

1. 6+8=
2. -4-3=
3. 15-2=
4. 14+8=
5. 9-23=
6. -5-8=
7. -12+25=
8. -11+12=
9. 22-8=
10. -7-8=
... and so on.

2. 5-(-8)-(7)+5=
4. 5-2-(-7)-(-3)=
6. -7-(-5)-(-7)-8=
8. -7-(-5)-(5)+8=
10. -(-2)-(-6)-15=
12. -2-3+4-6=
14. 2-7-8=
16. 3-9+8=
... and so on.

Sorry if I didn't explain well or didn't make sense. If I'm wrong, just comment. :)


Today in class, we got a new booklet. We have put away the yellow one, and we now have a green one. In the green one there are no brackets (training wheels). But there are some that do have training wheels, just to help you. That is practically all we have done for today. Mr. Harbeck has only talked about that for the whole 55 minutes we were with him. We need to do Part ONE on page 3 and also Part TWO on page 3 but only the even numbers. Here are 3 questions and answers for the homework we got.

Part One :
5. 9 - 23 = -14
6. -5 + 8 = 3
7. -12 + 25 = 13

Part Two :
2. (-8) - (7) + 5 = (-10)
-8 + -7 + 5 = -10
3. 8 - (-4) + 7 - (-2) = (+21)
8 + 4 + 7 + 2 = 21
4. 5 - 2 - (-7) - (-3) = (+13)
5 + -2 + 7 + 3 = 13

Hey guys, the first thing we did in class was the 10 question integer quiz, then we started a new unit book, but that doesnt mean were done with the yellow one, we'll come back to it later.



No more training PANTS

Green book-1st pg. ( Mr.H asked to do the first 3 questions )

1) 6+8=14


3) 15-2=13

In standard form we combine integers.

For 3) just imagine it like this--> (+15)+(-2)=13

Have 15, Owe 2 =13

By the way if you have noticed, THERE IS NO AND!

So, Mr.H told us to do it like this -> 15-2=+13

WELL.. I think that's it because i cant think of anything else to put on this soo, yeaah . Buh-Byee! (:

Addition and Subtraction of Integers

In class today we learned how to solve questions that has to do with adding and subtracting more than two numbers, like the question (-10)+(-8)+(+6)-(+2).

To solve this question you must first change the question so that all the operations are all addition.

Now you combine all the positive integers in one group and the negative integers in another group.

Now you add up the total of each group to get the answer.

If you have a zero pair in a question like that then do this.

That is how you get the answer for this type of integer question. These are some of the questions and answers for page 48 and page 49.

These are some of the questions from page 48.

22) (-5) + (-3) - (+4) = -12

27) (+5) - (+3) - (+2) + (-1) = -3

These are some of the questions from page 49.

7) (-8) - (-3) - (-4) = -1

10)(-8) - (+5) + (+3 = -16

18) (-2) - (-1) + (0) = -1

Sorry if I did anything wrong, just comment if I did.

These are 10 integer questions we were assigned to do today :

(+24) - (-82) = +106

(+52) - (+42) = +10

(-23) - (-107) = -130

(-96) - (+62) = -158

(+33) - (-76) = +109

(-65) - (+100) = -165

(+52) - (-102) = +154

(+81) - (+8) = +73

(+5) + (+3) = +8

(-6) - (-3) = -3

The Integer Killer

Its a cold Canadian winter night a scream echoes through the streets of Winnipeg."so wheres the body?" "Its right over here." My name is Tanner Goodwin I work at the Winnipeg police department in the crime scene investigation unit. Right now I'm working on the murder case of a young homeless girl on portage and main but so far the only clue is an integer question and a message written in blood. the question isn't to complex it is (-9)+(+41)=? the message says " solve the question and the answer will lead you to your next clue on Arlington st. So I solved the problem it was easy (-9)+(+41)=+38.

So I told the team where I was going and I moved onto the next clue at 38 Arlington st. when I arrived I noticed that the building was not a house but a warehouse so I walked in the front door and turned on the light and saw another dead body with another note and another question written in blood. the note was the same as before but stated that the next clue was on oxford street so I solved the question this one was a little harder (-51)+(+14)+(+51) but then I noticed that there was a zero pair so I easily solved the question called the team in and headed of to 14 oxford st.

When I got there I noticed that this one was a church so I went into the church and Inside the confession booth was yet another body and yet another question and note written in blood the note was also the same but the street was inkster ave. The question was (-63)+(+26)+(+48)=.The question was a little bit harder but I was able to solve it the answer is +11 so I called in a team, notified the department of a serial killer and sped off to 11 inkster ave.

When I got there I noticed that this was the first killing in a house so I kicked down the door but luckily there was only one person and once again there was a note and a question but the note said " congratulations Mr.Goodwin you've made it quite far but will you be able to catch me? the next clue will be on wall st." The question is (-44)+(+54)+(+1564). So I called the team and headed out to 1574 wall st. but soon I would catch the killer.

Today in math we learned how to subtract integers. We also found out that subtraction is a myth. To subtract integers, you have to add the opposite.

For example:

For homework we had to do p.46 A. (1-45). We had to answer three questions using algebra tiles.

For example:

Here are the questions and answers for p.46 A.

1. (-8)-(+2) 2. (-9)-(+3)

(-8)+(-2)= -10 (-9)+(-3)= -12

3. (-10) -(+5) 4. (-8)-(-3)

(-10)+(-5)= -15 (-8)+(+3)= -5

5. (-7)-(+7) 6. (-4)-(-6)

(-7)+(-7)= -14 (-4)+(+6)= 2

7. (-3)-(+3) 8. (-5)-(-9)

(-3)+(-3)= -6 (-5)+(+9)= 4

9. (-9)-(-12) 10. (-12)-(+18)

(-9)+(+12)= 3 (-12)+(-18)= -30

11. (-8)-(+4) 12. (+4)-(-9)

(-8)+(-4)= -12 (+4)+(+9)= 13

13. (+6)-(-12) 14. (-9)-(-15)

(+6)+(+12)= 18 (-9)+(+15)= 6

15. (-15)-(+6) 16. (+15)-(+6)

(-15)+(-6)= -21 (+15)+(-6)= 9

17. (+4)-(-3)


18. (+3)-(-2)

(+3)-(+2)= 5

19. (-5)-(-7) 20. (-2)-(+4)

(-5)+(+7)=2 (-2)+(-4)= -6

21. (-19)-(-18) 22. (+10)-(+19)

(-19)+(+18)= -1 (+10)+(-19)= -9

23. (-17)-(+23) 24. (+11)-(+14)

(-17)+(-23)= -30 (+11)+(-14)= -3

25. (+10)-(-16) 26. (+13)-(-12)

(+10)+(+16)= 26 (+13)+(+12)= 25

27. (-15)-(+6) 28. (-18)-(+14)

(-15)+(-6)= -21 (-18)+(-14)= -32

29. (0)-(-15) 30. (-13)-(+12)

(0)+(+15)= 15 (-13)+(-12)= -25

31. (+7)-(+3) 32. (-6)-(-3)

(+7)+(-3)= 4 (-6)+(+3)= -3

33. (-8)-(-6) 34. (+6)-(-3)

(-8)+(+6)= -2 (+6)+(+3)= 9

35. (-7)-(-8) 36. (-4)-(+2)

(-7)+(+8)= 1 (-4)+(-2)= -6

37. (+4)-(+2) 38. (-3)-(-14)

(+4)+(-2)=6 (-3)+(+14)= 11

39. (-3)-(+5) 40. (+8)-(-6)

(-3)+(-5)= -8 (+8)+(+6)= 14

41. (+5)-(-8) 42. (-8)-(+2)

(+5)+(+8)= 13 (-8)+(-2)= -10

43. (+7)-(-9) 44. (-8)-(+6)

(+7)+(+9)= 16 (-8)+(-6)= -14

45. (-7)-(-9)

(-7)+(+9)= 2

Ladies and gentlemen, children of all ages! Get ready to erase all of your childhood memories for subtraction is a myth! Kind of a sad realization isn't it?

"Subtraction is a myth, find the Myth Busters."
-Mr. Harbeck

So how do you solve a 'subtraction' question like (+8)-(+2)? By adding the opposite ofcourse!

For example:
Here is another example:
(+4) - (-3) =
(+4) + (+3) = +7
*Note that the first integer in the question does not change.

The homework is page 46 A. in the yellow math booklet, questions 1-45. Three questions have to be done with algebra tiles.

Algebra tiles are drawn like this:
Yes, you have to draw both of the opposites (positive and negative) and take away the integer that is from the original question.

The Lottery Ticket

One afternoon an old poor man was walking in a back lane , when he found a lottery ticket. The ticket said ,you have to solve a question to win money. The question was, (+6)+(+8). The old man thought as hard as he could. But he just couldn't figure it out. Then, out of no where, an young man came walking out of the blue , and said, "hey you, yeah you, what do you have in your hands"? The old man said "nothing of your business"

The young man said "what did you say to me, punk!" Then the old man said "its a lottery ticket" . Then the young man said in a mean voice "Well give me it then.....PUNK!". Then he he grabbed it and said " man this question is hard" The old man said "i know"

And again a little girl said "i am so poor , i need that lottery ticket to win money , now give that to me"! Then the young man said "no! This question is to hard for you!" The little girl thought she was smart so she said "im smart , i bet i could answer it ! whats the Question?" the young man said in a rude voice "For me to know and for you to find out!" then they started arguing away.

The old poor man kept thinking as hard as he could, but still no , he couldn't answer it
he needed help. Then all of of sudden A man saw all of the rucus then he had to go and see what was going on. The man said "whats going on here?" The young man said "i am want this ticket , but this girl won't let me answer this question .But its to hard for her!" The girl said "well i am smart and i could answer it" ,The man said "well lets see that lottery ticket........Man this is hard! Well i ve cot a calculator ,so i could win the money and bee rich!!"
The old man kept thinking..Then he finally got it!"yes i know the answer its... +14" Then i grabbed the ticket and ran off!
3 days later he was the smartest guy on earth , well probably not the smartest but the richest! By the way the old "poor" mans name is Fred.


Bruno's Adventure On Integers

Bruno was a monkey and lived in a tree house. One morning, he woke up and went to do his daily routine. Eating a lot of bananas was part of his daily routine. He went into the kitchen and realized that all of his bananas were gone. Bruno was confused and shocked but had an urge to find his bananas.

Bruno went outside and everything looked the same except there was some kind of object. Bruno ran to the object. It was a treasure chest with a lock on it. There was a picture beside the treasure chest. it was a math question, an integer question. The question was (+11)+(-1). In order for Bruno to open the treasure chest, he must answer the question correctly because it will complete the code for the lock. Bruno used big rocks to represent positive numbers and smaller rocks to represent negative numbers. He got 11 big rocks and 1 small rock. Bruno realized that 1 negative and 1 positive makes 0. These are called zero pairs. There were only one zero pair, so he took away to zero pair and counted what was left. There were 10 big rocks left which meant the answer to the question is +10. Bruno turned the arrow to the numbers 11, 1, and 10 on the lock and it was right. There was instructions showing where the next treasure chest was.

Bruno followed the instructions and it took him to another treasure chest which was in a garden. Next to the treasure chest was another question. The question was (-16)+(+24). He used pink daisies to represent positive numbers and dandelions representing negative numbers. There was 16 zero pairs since there were more positives than negatives. The answer is +8. Bruno turned the arrow on the lock to 16, 24 and 8. Yet again, he got it right.

The new instructions instructed Bruno to go to a pond. When he got to the pond, he instantly saw the treasure chest. He looked at the question and the question was a little bit more difficult but he wasn't going to give up now. The question was (-7)+(+21)+(-18). Bruno realized that there were 2 negative numbers, so he added them together. This was called group like terms. The question was now (-25)+(+21). It was much more easier for Bruno. He used cattails to represent positive numbers and lily pads to represent negative numbers. There were 21 zero pairs so -4 was left. Bruno spunthe arrow to the numbers 25, 21 and 4.

Marker and the 4 Math Questions

Once upon a time, there was a guy named Marker. This guy was no ordinary guy. He was a kind of person that was rich. The only reason why he was rich was because his mom and dad were king and queen. Since he was a prince, he didn’t have to go to school.
One day, something terrible happened. His castle got destroyed. After his castle got destroyed, the only one that survived was Marker. Marker didn’t know what to do, until he found a leprechaun. When he saw the leprechaun, he followed it. Later on the leprechaun stopped walking. The leprechaun then did a magic spell that made a rainbow. The leprechaun spotted Marker, and then asked Marker if he needed any help. Marker then told the leprechaun that he needed one wish from him. He asked the leprechaun if he could make the castle and his family back. The leprechaun told Marker that he would only let Marker have his wish, if he passed a test. For the test, the leprechaun turned Marker into a marker, and then told Marker to answer 4 math questions. There was only one problem. Marker never went to school. So that means he wouldn’t know any of the math questions that the leprechaun asked him. Since he never went to school, the leprechaun sent Marker to a school and told him that after he graduated school, he would then give him the questions.
When marker finally graduated school, the leprechaun turned Marker into a marker, and then asked him his first question. His first question was, (-7) + (-23) + (+98) + (+2). When Marker saw the question, the first thing that popped into his head was to group like terms. Since he knew to simplify the question, the question became easier to answer. When he simplified the question, this was his question. (-30)+ (+100). Marker was about to put an answer wrong. He was going to put that his answer was (-130). He forgot that when adding a positive number to a negative, you have to take the positive number and subtract it from the negative number. Before he wrote his answer down, he used a number line to help him. Since he used a number line, Marker fixed his mistake, and then got the right answer. His next question was a word problem. His word problem sounded like this. If you had $100, then you earned $50, then spent $32, and spent another$55, how much money would you have? The first thing that Marker did when he saw that question was make it into a math question. He put (+100) + (+50) + (-32) + (-50). After he made it into a math question, he simplified it. When he simplified it, he got (+150) + (-82). His answer at first was (+68). Even though that answer sounds right, it’s wrong. The thing that he forgot about was that he had to change his answer from a math question, into a normal question. But since he checked his answer before putting it down, he got the question right. His next question sounds easy but it is not. His next question was (+9) + (-9). The hard part about this question was that he had to identify what kind of integer his answer was. His answer was right, but now he has to do the other part of the question. For the second part of his question, he had to know what the word was called when something is not positive or negative. To remember that question, he thought back to when he was in school in science class. When he was in science class he remembered that he had to do a project that he had to do at home. His project was called the neutral floating device. Now he knew the second part of his question. His answer was that 0 was a neutral integer. His last question was the hardest out of all his other questions. His last question was (-273)+(+78)+(12)+(-987)+(-6)+(-456). For this question the leprechaun let Marker use a calculator. The mistake that he made this time was that he forgot that to group like terms. But before he put the answer down, he ate a banana. After he finished eating, he just remembered about grouping like terms. The only reason that he forgot about grouping like terms is because he was only thinking about how hungry he was. His answer was (-1632).
Finally, he answered all of the questions right. After he was done answering all of the questions, he got his wish from the leprechaun. After he got his wish, he had his house, and his family back, with something extra. He had an extra smarts. But then something terrible happened.

Marker and the Math Questions Part 2
Previously, Marker got his wish, but then something terrible happened. He had bumped his head so hard on the wall that he lost all of his memory. Since he lost all of his memory, he didn't know anybody anymore.
After a while his mom and dad were very worried. They thought that they would never get Markers memory back until they found a journal that had the words "Markers journal" printed on it. since they were so desperate in getting Markers memory back, they took a look. in the journal was drawings and paragraphs of what he did after his castle, mom and dad disappeared. While they were reading, they found something very strange. They found out that Marker met a leprechaun that gave wishes, and that they wouldn't of been alive if it wasn't for Marker. Also in that journal was the location that Marker found the leprechaun. After they read that part of the journal, they were very excited that they could finally have a way how to get Markers memory back. The journal said that the leprechaun was found right near by their house.
At this point, they were so excited that they both broke a steel desk. Since they were so excited, they decided to go on an adventure to find the leprechaun. When they got outside, the first place they looked was around the house. They couldn't find him. the second place that they looked was anywhere inside the house. The third place they looked was around the whole neighbourhood. Five hours went by and they still couldn't find him until they looked up. When they looked up they saw the leprechaun sitting on their roof eating a Popsicle. When they found the leprechaun, the first thing that they did was look in the journal to see what Marker did when he found the leprechaun. the only problem is that they couldn't find the journal. Markers dad who was named Pen, just remembered that he shredded it because he thought that it was his journal not Marker's.
Since they didn't have the journal anymore, they decided to just climb on top of the roof and catch the leprechaun. When they finally caught the leprechaun, the first thing that they did was ask the leprechaun to give them a wish and why they needed it. Since the leprechaun was so nice, he let them have the wish without answering any questions only in one condition. When the leprechaun gives Marker his memory back, Marker has to answer his questions. Since they were so desperate in getting Markers memory back, they agreed.
When Marker got his memory back, the leprechaun right away asked him the questions. The first question was a warm up question. The question was (-9)-(+9). Markers first answer was 0 but now he remembered that he was doing subtracting not adding. Since he remembered that, he got his question right.

The second question was a little bit harder than the last question. The question was (+9)-(-4)-(2). Marker's answer was right because he remembered to change all of the subtraction questions into and addition question.

The third question was tricky. The question was -(-3)-(-3). This question is tricky because there is a floating negative symbol. Even though this was one of the tricky questions, Marker knew what to do. He knew to change the first negative three into a positive 3 because of the floating negative symbol.
The last question was very tricky. Instead of just one number in the brackets, there were two. The question was -(-5-3)-(8-3). The only way that Marker got this question right was by cheating. He used a calculator. His answer was 3. After he answered all of the questions, he was allowed to keep his memory, and everyone was happy again.

Marker and the 4 Math Questions Part 3

Previously, Marker bumped his head. After he bumped his head he lost all of his memory. Since he lost all of his memory, his mom and dad didn't know how to get his memory back until they found Markers journal. With the journal, they were able to find the leprechaun, and get Markers memory back. When Marker got his memory back, he had to answer 4 math questions to keep his memory. He successfully answered all the questions right except for one mistake. He cheated on the last question because he didn't know what the answer was.
Since Marker cheated, he hasn't been able to sleep in knowing that he cheated on that last question. He would of the leprechaun sooner, but he didn't wan to disappoint him. He felt so bad because the leprechaun only gave me and my family a second chance because he trusted me.

When Marker finally got a chance to talk to the leprechaun, he didn't tell the truth because the leprechaun looked so happy to see Marker. Even though Marker messed up the first time, he didn't on the second time. When Marker finally told the leprechaun that he cheated, he thought that the leprechaun would get mad at him. But instead, the leprechaun stayed calm. He stayed calm because when he was a kid, he would always cheat in school. He also told Marker that he was glad that he cheated because he really wanted Marker to keep his memory.

Even though the leprechaun wasn't mad about the whole cheating thing, The leprechaun still made Marker answer 4 math questions. But this time the wishes were a test to see how much Marker knows about math. But instead of subtracting integers, this time it was both subtracting and addition questions in the same questions.
The first question was an easy question. the question was 5+(-6)-4-(-2). The first thing that popped up into Markers mind was to change this whole question into an addition question. the way that Marker did that was by making the subtraction signs into a positive and the integer beside it, only if the question was telling you to subtract a negative. The question that Marker got now was 11-6. Now Marker could answer it properly. he got 5 as an answer.

The second question was really easy if you knew your zero pairs. The question was (-9)-(-8)+9. For this question Marker right away saw the zero pair. Since he saw the zero pair, his answer was -8 because that was the only integer left after you take the zero pairs away.
The third question was a little bit harder because it had a floating negative sign in it. The question was -(-3)+7-(3)+5. For this question, the first thing that he did was changed the first number into a positive number because of the floating negative sign. Then he added negative 3 to 3 and got 0. The last thing that he did was add 7 and five because it was the last numbers left.
The last question was the hardest question was the hardest out of all the question that the leprechaun asked Marker because it has two integers in one bracket. His question was (8-10)-(-7+5)+9. For this question, Marker was very smart now. So this question was really easy to him. He got the answer right away. His answer was 10.

After Marker answered all of the questions correctly, the leprechaun got so old that he retired from his job. Since Marker and his family were so grateful, they let the leprechaun live with them for the rest of his life so he has a place to stay when he finishes work.
The leprechaun, Marker and his family all lived happily ever after.


SpongeBobs Quest For The Missing Integer Patty

Chapter 1: Spongebob`s Quest For The Missing Integer Patty
One day when Spongebob arrived at the Krusty Krab, he saw Mr. Krabs crying. Then Spongebob asked Mr.Krabs what`s wrong, and Mr.Krabs said that the special integer patty is missing, and Spongebob is the only one for the job. As soon as Mr.Krabs stopped talking Spongebob rushed out the door to look for the missing integer patty. Spongebob took his car and Patrick to find the patty. Spongebob and Patrick was driving around the town when they came across a huge gate. Spongebob tried to open gate, then when he touched the gate an integer question appeared: (+12) + (-23): have 12 and owe 23. Spongebob answered the question and the answer that he got is -11. So he yelled out the answer -11 and the gate opened. Then they drove through the open gate and they continued their quest for the missing integer patty.

Then Spongebob and Patrick kept on going. While they were driving they came upon a strange guy waiting for a car, and he was on the side of the highway. So they stopped and gave the guy a ride. As they were driving, the strange guy pulled out a fake gun and he tried to steal the car from Spongebob and Patrick. The strange guy told them to get out of the car, and then the guy drove away with it. Spongebob and Patrick didn`t know what to do so they thought that they should walk, and find someone to help them. While they were walking they saw a bus, and the bus stopped, so they got in. The bus kept on going. Then when the bus was almost near the gas station. Spongebob and Patrick got out. When the bus left they saw a restaurant. Spongebob thought that the integer patty might be inside, but the only way to find out was to check. So they walked over to the restaurant, and as they were going in, a big security guard stopped them. The guard said that they can only get in if they answer the question correctly. The question is (+6) + (-6). Patrick tried to answer the question and his answer is -3, and the guard said that it was wrong. Then Spongebob tried to answer the question, but he didn`t know the answer, so he used a number line to help him.

Then Spongebob said that the answer is 0, because (+6) +(-6) is a zero pair. Spongebob got it right so the guard let them go in.

Spongebob and Patrick didn`t find the integer patty. They kept on on walking and walking, even though it was dark outside. As they were walking they saw two bicycles, and they took it with them. Spongebob and Patrick kept on biking until they saw a bunch of big muscular guys standing in the middle of the road. The big guys stopped Spongebob and Patrick, and the guys said that they can`t go through, and that the only way they can go through is to answer question using tiles, and the question is (-10) + (+2). Spongebob and Patrick arranged the tiles by making zero pairs, and they got 2 zero pairs and there answer is -8. The muscular guys said that they could go in, they also said that they should be careful.

After they got through, Spongebob and Patrick continued their quest for the missing integer patty. Then they kept on biking until they saw a huge bridge. When they got to the bridge, it was closed, and that no one can open it, unless they anser the question in less than 10 seconds. So the question appeared and it was (+8) +(+2). Spongebob answered quickly and he yelled out +10, and he was right, and the bridge door opened. When Spongebob got to the middle of the bridge he saw one fourth of the integer patty, but he couldn`t find the rest.

Chapter 2: Spongebob`s Quest For The Missing Integer Patty
Spongebob and Patrick only found 1/4 of the missing integer patty. So they continued their quest for the missing integer patty. Spongebob and Patrick kept on going. While they were biking, they came upon a huge cave. While they were looking for the integer patty, a huge monster appeared in front of them. The monster said that they cannot go through, unless they answer the question correctly, and they have to use algebra tiles. The question is (-4)-(-3).Spongebob tried figuring out the answer using algebra tiles.[Photo]Spongebob told the monster that the answer is -1. Spongebob was right, so the monster disappeared, and they were able to go through.Spongebob and Patrick kept on searching inside the cave.
Then another monster appeared, but this time it's more hairy and scary. Then the monster said that they can only get through if they answer the question correctly using a number line. The question is (-3)-(-7)(-3)+(+7)=+4So Patrick drew a number line:[Photo]So Patrick showed the monster the number line and the answer, and Patrick was right. So the monster told them to go pass. Spongebob was so proud of Patrick, so he gave him a hug.Spongebob and Patrick continued their quest for the missing integer patty. While they were walking inside the cave, the floor started to crack, and Spongebob and Patrick fell down in a room, it was dark and scary. When they got to the door, it was locked, and the only way to open it is to answer the question correctly.
The question was (-4)-(+6)(-4)+(-6)= -11Owe 4 and owe 6= -11Spongebob yelled out the answer -11, and the door opened.Spongebob and Patrick kept on going. Then they saw a dark room. When they got in the room they saw the other 1/4 of the integer patty. Then Spongebob took the integer patty, and the doors started to close slowly. When the doors were all closed, an integer question appeared.(-2)-(-2)(-2)+(+2)= 0Spongebob answered 0 and the doors opened. When they got out of the cave Spongebob and Patrick put together the integer patty, and they were missing half of the integer patty.

Chapter 3: Spongbob`s Quest For The Missing Integer Patty
Spongebob and Patrick had found half of the missing integer patty. So Spongebob and Patrick kept on going. Right after they got out of the cave, Spongebob and Patrick went to the mall to look for the missing integer patty. When Spongebob and Patrick arrived at the mall, the first place they checked was the food court but they didn't find the integer patty. So, they looked inside a clothing store. When they got to the store, the doors were locked, and the only way to open it is answer the question correctly. The question is (-4) + (+3) Spongebob used algebra tiles to answer the question.

The Backyardigans Journey Through Integers (:

One day, the backyardigans were bored in their backyard having nothing to do. While just sitting there Pablo says aloud "Lets do something we'll never forget, lets imagine we're at the magical forest of integers!". "That sounds like a unique imagination" says Tasha. "Pablo what exactly are integers?... the rest of us don't even know what it means" says Austin. Pablo says in a clear voice "Integers are positive and negative numbers". Pablo went on, now explaining how to add integers". "When 2 numbers are positive you can simply add the 2 numbers together, when 2 numbers are negative you add the 2 numbers together and the sum remains a negative number". "To add a positive and a negative integer you subtract the smaller number from the larger number and the sum will have the sign of what ever sign the larger number had."

Pablo and the rest started to image their surroundings from a backyard to a "magical forest of integers". The magical forest had tall trees with integers hanging from it, bushes had integers instead of berries on it, even the ground covering plant had numbers on them. Pablo and the friends were surprised by how colourful the "magical forest of integers" was. It had red numbers, blue numbers, light green numbers that matched the trees, yellow numbers and so many colors that you could possibly imagine. Pablo saw a path of rocks, with an arrow pointing to go down the path and so Pablo called the rest of the gang to follow along.

While they strolled down the path they reached a deer. The deer seemed very happy to see them, while they drew closer to the deer, the deer said in an excited but clear voice "Welcome, now that you are here you will be encountering many animals with "integer" questions, the animals will ask anyone of you to answer the question, when you finish the task you will see a "magical castle", the animal closest to the magical castle will hand you a key so that you 5 can go in the magical castle and each of you can make 3 wishes in the castle". The deer then turned to Pablo and said "here is your first question, if you answer this question right you may be able to go along with the rest of your journey". (+7)+(-2) the deer said. Pablo in his head thought of it as money. Pablo mumbled positive equals to "I have" and negative equals to "I owe". The answer is "+5" Pablo yelled aloud. "That is correct " the deer said, " now you may go along with your journey, good luck to the 5 of you" the deer said happily.

They once again went walking down the path. A few moments later a raccoon walk out from behind a bush and stoped right infront of them. As they drew closer to the raccoon it looked as if the raccoon was smiling at them. The raccoon said aloud and clear "Hi there, this is your second question", and looked at Austin. (-5)+(+7) said the raccoon. Austin looked down at the ground and saw 5 small rocks that would represent the negatives and 7 large rocks that would represent the positives, he thought of the rocks as "Chips". Austin shouted the answer is "+2"! The raccoon said excitedly "Terrific, that's correct, you may now follow through".

They were so excited they almost begun running down the path. Tasha yelled "look, its the next animal with our next question", and they rushed down the path. When they got near to the animal they could all see it was a fox. The fox said "Nice to see you, here is your third question", and the fox glanced at Tasha. (-15)+(+10) the fox said. Tasha invisioned a numberline in her head with the (-) negatives on the left, and the (+) positives on the right. She said in a questioning voice "-5". The fox immediately said "Yay! Good for you, now you may reach your fourth question."

They all started running at full speed down the path to know what the next question was going to be, and to see the next animal. They finally reached the animal and which the animal was a friendly bear. The bear said "Hello, I'm pleased to see you this far, here is your fourth" The bear look at all of the backyardigans, and then pointed at Tyrone. (+6)+(-6) "here you go" said the bear. Tyrone mumbled "its a zero pair, so its "0"! he yelled! "Good job, now you better hurry along to see your next question" said the bear.

Will the backyardigans get to the magical castle and complete the task ?

The Backyardigans Journey Through Integers Part 2.

The backyardigans are now even more excited to continue they're journey through integers. As they were walking down the path they noticed that the rocky path came to a end, and lead to a big open field. It basically was a sea of color, it was full of integer wild flowers. In the far distance they saw something that appeared to be a big black horse. They started to skip through the flowers, happily keeping their eyes on the animal ahead of them. As they drew closer they could all see that it was indeed a beautiful black horse. The horse stated galloping towards them as well, at last they met. The horse said "Hello, I am very pleased to see you all... here is your fifth question... The horse look very nicely at Uniqua... "-4-3" the horse said in a clear voice. "it is subtracting integers but its kind of like adding integers, remember that" whispered Pablo. "Oh ok, that helps" Uniqua mumbled. Uniqua thought and thought, it took her awhile in till she figured it out. "its -7!!, I also used integer chips in my head. "Well good job, now just follow that arrow in the field and it will take you to your next animal and question" the horse said.

They all saw the arrow and they started walking toward it, then they walked past the arrow. They walked ahead alittle further more and saw a animal but they couldn't make out what it was. Once they reached the animal they were surprised to see it was a buffalo standing beside a stream. The buffalo said "You have made it to your final question" the buffalo said and looked at Pablo. "If you answer this question correctly you will find the castle down the stream and over the hill, another animal will be waiting to give you the the key to the castle" the buffalo said. "Here is your question... Pablo... +2-+6+-2" the buffalo said in a loud voice. Pablo mumbled and mumbled to himself trying to think out the answer. He finally got it, he changed the question a bit to get the answer. "its -6" said Pablo. "Good job, that one was a tricky one but you got it!" said the buffalo excited. "You now must follow the stream, and when the stream comes to a end there will be a hill you must walk up the hill to see the next animal with the key to the castle" the buffalo said in a very clear and loud voice.

They started running down the side of the stream, the stream final ended and they reached the hill, the hill was a grassy hill with a lot of colors. They started walking up the grassy hill, it took them a very long time to get to the top of the hill but then finally they reached the top of the hill, and saw a kangaroo they drew closer and closer to the kangaroo. When they got close enough they heard the kangaroo say "Hey guys, you made it this far and i cant believe it, good work, here is now the key to the castle. Tasha immidantaly was super excited and grabbed the key as soon as she saw the key. Tasha grabbed Pablo, Austin, Tyrone, and Uniqua and she started running with them up to the castle, they all got really excited but not knowing what they would wish for. They final got to the door of the castle, Tasha took the key out of her pocket and she opened the door."Wow, this is AMAZING" said Tasha. "I cant believe we made it this far" said Pablo. The castle was huge, with a lot of color like everything else, the walls were made with great big stones. Each and every one of them made 3 wishes but 1 of the wishes was that they all wished to go back in their backyard.

The End.. (:
