I Have Who Has: Order of Operations

This game includes 2 sets of 30 playing cards. Each player takes one (or more) playing card(s). The game begins with the player who has the card that states “I have the first card.” That player then reads the Who Has section. The person holding the answer to the “Who Has” question then reads their I Have Who Has card. The game continues until the last card is played.

These games correlate the the CCSS 5.OA.A.1 and 5.OA.A.2

These are great math games that help your students practice the order of operations. The first set includes cards that have multi step equations, and the second set of game cards includes the word equations in which students must figure out what the numeric equation looks like and then solve.

Ideas for classroom use:
 Morning Work: Students take a card upon entering the room and complete the Who Has section. To check the answers, the class plays the game at the beginning of the math lesson.
 Exit Ticket: Teacher hands out cards to students and gives time limit for completion. (I use 2 minutes.) The teacher waits at the door until time is exhausted and begins the game. The student with the correct “Who Has?” answer will bring their card and work to the door. The teacher will then read the next “Who Has” question. This proceeds until all students have been dismissed.
 Whole Class use: Teacher hands out a card to each student and begins the game by asking a student to read their card. Each time a “Who Has” question is read, all students must complete the equation to see if they have the card with the correct answer. This continues until all cards have been read and the game is over.
 Small Group: The cards are split up among the small group students and is played similarly to the whole class activity except each student will have multiple cards to play instead of only one.

to see state-specific standards (only available in the US).
Write simple expressions that record calculations with numbers, and interpret numerical expressions without evaluating them. For example, express the calculation “add 8 and 7, then multiply by 2” as 2 × (8 + 7). Recognize that 3 × (18932 + 921) is three times as large as 18932 + 921, without having to calculate the indicated sum or product.
Use parentheses, brackets, or braces in numerical expressions, and evaluate expressions with these symbols.
