This is a game to solve problems using the order of operation. Students work individually and as a team to see who can solve the problem first. Each student must solve one step of the problem before passing the problem onto the next student. My students love playing this game, and it forces each student to do their part. It is quick and challenging. These problems are challenging, including at least 4 steps to solve each problem.
I really like this activity and I will definitely use it with my 8th grade math class. I found quite a few mathematical errors and discrepancies between the questions and the answer key. Question card number 4 should have a set of parentheses surrounding the -4. Question card number 10 should have a set of parentheses surrounding the -1. Question card number 11 should have the close of the square bracket just before the /3.
Answer to number 5 should be positive 8. Again Iâ€™d like to say that I truly like the product and I will definitely use it, but I think you should correct the errors. I made sure to work each question systematically and then check it with a TI 83 calculator to verify if I felt there was a mistake. Iâ€™m just glad I checked this before I started using it with my students.
