Operation to Exploration: Order of Operations

This Operation to Exploration: Order of Operations lesson plan also includes:

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.
