Purpose: The overarching goal of this lesson is to teach students about the order of operations (PEMDAS). This fits into the ‘bigger picture’ because it will help all students to understand the basic order that they must use to solve expressions.
Objectives: As a result of this lesson:
• Students will be able to identify the basic order of operations using the acronym (PEMDAS).
• Students will be able to solve equations using the order of operations.
• Students will be able to apply the rules of exponents to PEMDAS
