Introduction to Order of Operations
First demonstrating the improper ways of solving an equation (left-to-right, multiplication first), Sal shows viewers how the answer of an equation can be drastically incorrect by neglecting to use the order of operations. He uses several examples to demonstrate the order of operations at work and clarifies the times when the answer to an equation will be the same no matter what the order.
Order Of Operations (I)
For this order of operations worksheet, students problems solve and calculate the answers to five equations involving addition, subtraction, division and multiplication.
Order of Operations
Some terrific practice in solving math equations that have a specific order of operations component built into them. Some of the problems have parentheses, and all four operations are present in the problems. Pupils solve 50 problems and the answers appear at the bottom of the instructional activity.
More Complicated Order of Operations Example
Demonstrating a "really hairy and beastly problem," Sal again shows the power and importance of solving an equation according the order of operations. Additionally, he guides viewers through a step in the equation when there are multiple operations of the same level.
1-3 Study Guide: Order of Operations
The order of operations is compared to punctuation in a sentence: it makes the meaning clear. After two example problems are solved according to a four-step format, your math class evaluates 12 expressions on their own. Learners could apply the PEMDAS acrostic, of course. A copy of the worksheet containing answers follows the assignment.
Order of Operations Treasure Hunt
Fourth graders generate algebraic expressions using the proper order of operations. For this algebra lesson, students work in groups to design a treasure map in which algebraic equations must be solved using the correct order of operations. Students decide where treasure is hidden, then create and follow their group's map. As a culminating activity, students trade maps to be followed.
Order of Operations
Fourth graders develop an understanding of the order of operations by relating to putting on a sock and shoe. In this order of operations lesson, 4th graders a mnemonic device to complete math examples. Students can communicate the importance of the correct order.
Order of Operations
In this order of operations worksheet, students solve problems that include all four operations, parenthesis, square roots, and more. Students complete 50 problems.
MS Math Order of Operations
Seventh graders create a mnemonic device which correctly represents the order of operations. They simplify expressions by correctly following the order of operations. Students use PEMDAS-parentheses, exponents, multiplication, division, addition and subtraction.
Order Of Operations (J)
In this order of operations worksheet, students problem solve and calculate the answers to five equations involving addition, subtraction, division and multiplication.
Order of Operations B
In this math worksheet, students solve the problems using the order of operations. The example is listed on the right side of the page.
Order of Operations A
In this math worksheet, students solve the problems using the order of operations. There is an example and the answers are found on page two.
Order of Operations E
For this math worksheet, students solve the problems using the order of operations by following the example. The answers are found on page two.
Order of Operations D
In this math worksheet, young scholars solve the problems using the order of operations and the example. The answers are found on page two.
Order of Operations G
In this math worksheet, students solve the problems using the order of operations and the example. The answers are found on page two.
Operation to Exploration: Order of Operations
Your mathematicians practice order of operations. When they solve a problem, the answer tells them how many steps to take. You indicate which compass direction to go and they pace their way to find hidden historic artifacts. It's a cross-curricular lesson disguised as pure fun! Engaging for your kinesthetic learners, and a great way to take class outside on a nice day. Includes a link to TeacherTube's "Order of Operations" rap video and clear directions for using a couple of handy apps, though the lesson could be completed without any electronics at all. Also links to a printable PEMDAS poster or handout. You need to provide the order of operations problems and the historical treasures for class members to find.
Bowling Over the Order of Operations
Upper graders will solve equations using order of operations, and create equations that to play a fun math bowling game. They will bowl using dice to practice operations. Extensions are also included.
Evaluate a Numerical Expression Using Order of Operations
Order of operations is a common thread through different levels of math. Use PEMDAS to practice solving multiple step numerical expressions. The fourth in a series of five videos goes step-by-step through each operation. It explains common mistakes when not using PEMDAS. Solve more expressions with guided practice listed under resources.
Order of Operations
This resource shows how to evaluate complex statements using the order of operations. Mr. Khan explains that the parenthesis takes precedent, exponents are second, multiplication and division are the next to be solved, and addition and subtracting are the slowest operating so they are done last. He evaluates an expression using different colors, each representative of a different operation.
Order of Operation
Seventh graders use order of operation correctly to solve equations. In this algebra lesson plan, 7th graders are asked to solve problems with division, multiplication, exponents and parentheses. They know if they do not use the correct order of operation, their answers will be completely wrong.
