#### Storyboard Text

• Jeez!!! I've never realized how HUGE your apartment is!!! How many floors are there?!
• 8) Well, I explored the building and counted 20 floors above ground and 5 floors below ground. So, I used a math problem that I learned from my awesome teacher, Mrs. Nuss, to help me figure out how many floors are in the building. The problem is 20+(-5) and got the answer 25. Which means that there are 25 floors total in my apartment building.
• 9) Today, I was on the 20th floor, and walked down 2 floors per minute for 5 minutes. 5x(-2)= -10. I would end up at 1 floor below my apartment, since i live on floor 11. So my final location would be at -1.
• ﻿Hi! I'm from the local newspaper and I'm doing an article about how fast teens can move when walking downstairs. Do you mind giving your personal experience for the paper?
• ﻿10) Sure!!! Earlier today I walked down 135 feet in 15 minutes. -135/15= -9. Meaning that earlier today I walked 9 feet per minute. Yesterday, I walked 85 feet in 10 minutes. -85/10=8.5.  Meaning that l walked 8.5 feet per minute yesterday. Therefore, i walked faster yesterday then l did today.
