My Dear Aunt Sally can't remember the way home and needs help getting to her house! Students must answer the questions correctly and follow the order or operations to help Aunt Sally get home safely.
Have fun practicing the order of operations with this silly board game, complete with "My Dear Aunt Sally" printable game board, game pieces and 72 question cards with answers.
Question cards are two sided so players can practice the order of operations and check their answers!
Questions range from 2 operations and up, including the more challenging problems with embedded parentheses and exponents.
Printable game board (comes in two pieces), game pieces, question cards and directions are all included.
There must be an issue with your adobe reader. I just double checked the product by downloading it and I don't see that happening. You might need to update adobe reader. The issue is not with the product itself.

I projected this on the white board and played as a class. The kids loved it!
This looks very cute. I love the graphics and the idea. I think this will be a great game to play in my 6th grade math class. I am going to make these in color and laminate them.
A few suggestions:
1) I would remove the equal signs when you are working with expressions.
2) It would be great if you could format these to copy back to back. I have to make 6 sets, and I do not want to spend the time cutting and pasting all the cards. In order to do this, you have to print the questions in both columns of page one and then answers in both columns of page two but then you reverse the order.
Thanks so much for the feedback and suggestions. I've been wanting to update this product for awhile. The new version has 12 cards per page and is set to print back to back. Also, the question cards are now written as expressions that need to be simplified without the equals signs. Thanks again!
I love this board game and can't wait to let student's try this! I teach student's with special needs, so it is always helpful whenever we can break down a concept with a game. Thanks for creating this. I did go in to change a few things around so that all of the numbers would show up.

The game was a big hit amoungst my 6th graders. It really helped cement the order-of-operation saying, "Please Excuse My Dear Aunt Sally". My students begged me to let them play it again. I was able to go around to each table and evaluate which students still needed one-on-one time. Only negative would be that I wish there were more cards on one paper...I spent money in printing only 4 cards per page. Also double check the format before you print. I have a few answers spaces move onto the answer side of the cards. I plan on keeping this game handy for a sub to use.
