Assignment Revision

Many of you are having a problem with the blogger assignment as you did not have any problems with the test and there are not enough questions to answer so to earn the blogger marks you can do this. Post some type of question that you have about math. Is there something that you are confused about that we have or haven't learned this year. If you are still really stumped create a question for others to solve i.e. a brain teaser. You will be responsible for provinding an answer to this brain teaser at a later point in time.

happy blogging everyone.

The Boat The whitemen & the cowardly canibals

Here is a brainteaser for everybody!!

on one side of a river there are three whitemen and on the other side of the river there are three canibals.There is also a boat on the canibals side. You have to get the three canibals on to the other side with the whitemen, but the boat only has three spots and you cannot bring them all over at once. you also can't bring them over one by one either. Oh ya, and on the boat there can never be more canibals on the boat than whitemen because they will gang up and eat the whitemen but there can be more whitemen than canibals because the canibals are cowards they do it 2 on 1 not 1 on 1.

Good luck!! (they'll never get it)!!

Sorry the boat is actually on the whitemans side!! ( MY FAULT, SORRY)

integer test

when we do our correction do we just put the question number then right the answer down ?

answer to peggy's question .

to do the chart on the math test you look at the first row and first coloumn where it says " Second Number(+) and First Number (+). it means that when you add/subtract an integer that is both positive, the answer is either a positive or a negative , which is what you put into the blank .

Guess my age

I've had a very peculiar life. For the first quarter of my life, I played no sports at all. After that, I only played one sport at a time. After the first quarter, I played only baseball for ten years. I got tired of that so I switched to only playing tennis for nine years. Next, for the past eight years, I've only been running. How old am I?
