Integer Rules Rap Integer Rules Song (Add, Subtract, Multiply, Divide)
We can sing the following to the tune "Mary had a little lamb"

Lyrics:
Add them together, give them that sign
Subtract them and give them the largest number sign

Subtracting integers is so fine
For adding like signs or different signs

To multiply or divide
All you have to do is look at their signs
When both have the same sign

Lyrics:
Different signs subtract
If the same

If different

Adding and Subtracting Integer Rules Song
We can sing the following to the tune "row row row your boat"

Lyrics:
Different signs subtract,
Keep the sign of the bigger number,
Then, you'll will be exact. Adding and Subtracting Integers Blues Song
Lyrics:
I never been so mad before.
Come to find out I can't add no more.
When positives and negatives are in my sight,
boom boom, out go the lights.

It used to be that I could add with flair,
5 + 2 I could add without care,
but now that it's five + negative 2
Boom Boom, I don't know what to do.

Adding Integers is like watching a war.
The side that's gonna win is the side with more.
So if five is there add -2 comes by,
boom boom - a bunch are gonna die.

No kidding - they're ready to fight,
ain't no need to call CSI, -8 + 3,
boom boom, crash
What if -5 walks through the best buy doors and runs into a negative four
They are both on the same force so no boom - just shopping galore. Multiply Integers Song
Lyrics:
when the good guys win thats good
and when the good guys lose thats bad
but when the bad guys lose hey that's good
