Our Order of Operations Lesson Plan demonstrates how to simplify and solve problems by identifying and using the order of operations correctly. Capitalize on peer learning as students create their own order of operations equations for another student to solve, which strengthens the ability to identify inaccuracies. Students are challenged to create their own pneumonic, reinforcing the order of operations. Students are also asked to individually complete practice problems in order to demonstrate their understanding of the lesson.
At the end of the lesson, students will be able to apply the order of operations to mathematical expressions.
