20090115 

From stephanie: hi, I'm currently working in a grade 8 class where the students are
learning about integers. the students were asked to find examples of how
integers are applied in real life. they were able to find aplications for:
adding and subtracting both positive and negative integers. however,
we could not find an example of where two negative integers would be
either divided or multiplied together in real life. For example: (2)(4)= +8.
please help. Answered by Harley Weston.

From A student: I am a Grade 9 student from Ontario Canada who has never understood how to do integers very well. I was wondering if you would be able to either send me some sites that will tell me how to calculate them in a simple way or if you would be able to write me back and give me some pointers.
