Humble Pi


A fun station activity to get kids moving and working together as they solve order of operations problems. Students “solve the crime” by rotating through 8 stations and solving one problem that gives them one piece of information about the theft. Multiple choice answers include common mistakes that students make when solving order of operations problems. Student recording sheets and answer key included. Aligned to 6.EE.2c, but great for 7th grade review, too.

Evaluate expressions at specific values of their variables. Include expressions that arise from formulas used in real-world problems. Perform arithmetic operations, including those involving whole-number exponents, in the conventional order when there are no parentheses to specify a particular order (Order of Operations). For example, use the formulas V = s³ and A = 6 s² to find the volume and surface area of a cube with sides of length s = 1/2.
