### Scribe Post for January 5, 2010

Tuesday, January 5, 2010

Hello 9-05! Today in class we went over our Check Your Understanding. Some people had a hard time to understand the difference between -2^4 and (-2)^4.

When the base is put in a bracket, everything in the bracket will be repeated depending on the exponent.
Remember this old saying? Well now it comes in handy.
When there is an even amount of negatives, the product is positive. When there is an odd amount of negatives, the product is negative.

When the base has no brackets, then you don't count the negative into the base.

Eg.

If my explanation wasn't clear enough go to Mr. Backe for help because I can't make it any more clearer than that. (Sorry)

HOMEWORK:

Workbook 3.1

Textbook: #9, 11, 13, 15, 16, 17, 18, 19, 21, 22, 23

Oh yeah, I almost forgot, for next scribe I choose Melanie!

Great job Zerlina! Nice pictures, font, and advice. Everything is very clear, but I suggest that on your ''old saying,'' you mention that you're dealing with multiplication. Overall, GREAT WORK! By the way, thanks for choosing me for the next scribe! Now that I have internet again, I owe everyone my hardwork! I'll try my hardest for the rest of the year (;
