Multiplying
Integers

first
we learned to multiply two positives together. To multiply positives
you multiply them. But you have to show your work.

For
example:

(+3)x(+4)=
+12

to
show your work you have to write out: (number) groups of (number)

(+3)x(+4)=+13

3
groups of 4

You
also have to model the question. To model you must have a certain
number of groups containing a certain number of positives/negatives.
But it is not a group unless you circle the groups. Then show that
they are arriving

(++++)
(++++) (++++)<-------

Multiplying
negatives

To
multiply negatives you do the same thing except with a negative.

For
example:

(2)x(-3)=
-6

2
groups of negative 3

(---)
(---)<----

If
the first number is a negative then the words start with remove

(-4)x(3)=

**-**12
remove
4 groups of 3

to
do this we need to have zero pairs

---
--- --- ---

(+++)
(+++) (+++) (+++)

then
make 4 groups of 3 positives. And then show that the
positives/negatives are going away by making a arrow pointing away
from the groups.

(+++)----> (+++)-----> (+++)-----> (+++)---->

f
you are still feeling confused here is a video

feel
free to criticize and correct me

Great job Julius, i really liked how you explained what to do and kept it short and easy to understand. I also think the way you described multiplying negative and positive integers, i really understood your concept.
