Sometimes, simplifying numerical expressions using the order of operations can be a bit. . . boring. Not just for myself, but most importantly for the students. That's why I created this activity. I wanted students to have a hands-on, interactive opportunity to learn.

Students learn the order of operations based on sequence of colors. Green always goes first, then yellow, and red goes last. Remembering 3 steps is much easier than 6 (PEMDAS).

This activity does take some prep time to glue the pages and cut them (only need about 6 set), but students will value this type of learning. The good news is, you can reuse the pieces again, year after year. You can apply any order of operations worksheet.

What you get:

  • template for parentheses, multiplication, division
  • template for addition and subtraction
  • template for writing in numbers
  • 2 worksheets for students to work on.
  • instructions on how to create the operation cards

View the video preview to see how the cards are made and how to use the color cards with operations. The video also shows what is included.
