### Jammelle's Dividing Integer Post

- The product of two integers with the same sign is POSITIVE.
- The product of two integers with different sign is NEGATIVE.

Here are the examples !!

### Fiolo's Fraction Scribe Post

Rules in multiplying Fraction:
There are 3 simple steps to multiply fractions.
1. Multiply the top numbers (numerators).
2. Multiply the bottom numbers (denominator).
3. Simplify the fractions if needed.

Example:

 1 × 2 2 5
Step 1: Multiply top numbers.
Step 2: Multiply bottom numbers.

Step 3: Simplify the fraction.

Multiplying fraction with whole numbers.

 2 × 5 3
Make 5 into 5/1 :
 2 × 5 3 1
Now just proceed as normal.
Multiply tops and bottoms:
 2 × 5 = 2 × 5 = 10 3 1 3 × 1 3
The fraction is already as simple as it can be.

or 3 1/3

### Braeden's Fraction Scribepost

Textbook Pg 228-229

11) In a comedy review, each performer had 1/4 of a shot. How many performers are there in a 2h show?

Answer: Greater than. Divide 2 by 1/2. 2/1 x 4/1 x 8/1= 1/4 x 4/1 = 1

12) It takes 2 1/2 of flour to make one cake. How many cakes do 15 scoops make?

Answer: Greater than. 15 divided by 2 1/2. 15/1 x 2/5 = 6. 5/2 x 2/5 = 1

13) Three quarters of a can of apple juice fills six glasses. How many glasses will a whole can of apple juice fill?

Answer: Greater than. 6 divide by 6/1 x 4/3 = 24/3 simplify = 8 3/4 x 4/3 = 1.

### Breister's Pay it Forward

Part 1
What is "Pay it Forward".
Pay it forward is an act of kindness where you do something nice to person and expecting nothing back from them. This act of kindness can spread throughout the world and turn this world better.

Part 2
What was your Pay It Forward act of kindness?
My pay it forward is shoveling snow.

Why did you choose this activity?
I choose this activity because its very easy and helping people out at the same time.

Who did you help?

What did you do?
I was shoveling the snow

When did you do you act of kindness?
December 20 2012

Part 3
How did your act of kindness go?
It was pretty easy.

What Happened?
I shovel all the snow that is on the pathway.

How did you feel?
I felt okay doing it and kind of happy helping out my family

How did the person or people react?
My dad was glad that I was helping him out do some of house work.

Did you ask the person or people to "Pay It Forward"?
nope

How did they react to your request?
My dad don't have to do my request even if I dot ask him because ever sense I was a child he help out people who's in need. My dad always do nice act of kindness so I didn't have to remind him that.

If you did not ask the person to "Pay It Forward" how come?
I did not ask him to pay it forward because my dad always return the kindness even without asking it. He also help people out already so I didn't have to remind a guy who always do nice of kindness to people and specially to his family.

Part 4
Why is the idea of "Pay it Forward" important?
Why I believe, Pay It Forward, is important is because, it teaches people to give, and  expect nothing to get, not to be selfish with each other, and if I have lots of stuff I should learn to give it people who needs it the most

I think my act of kindness doesn't make that much different except making the pathway less snowy, and also my dad didn't have to do it.

### Marie Ann's Fraction Scribepost

3. Words

When you are doing words all you have do is change "×" to groups of.

Make your number line and multiply the numbers you have and start to jump (whatever you want to call it)  if your question is 3 x 1/2 then you jump three 1/2..

For addition you take the fraction  (for example you have 6 x 1/2) you write 1/2 + 1/2 +  1/2 + 1/2...............
