Need an activity to practice order of operations using whole numbers, without exponents, that also helps to reinforce the meaning of parenthesis and brackets? Look no further! This partner game INTEGRATES TECHNOLOGY, while also helping students reach mastery level of simplifying equations! Download comes with 24 equations, QR Code answers, Answer Sheet (in case you do not have the ability to read QR Codes) Recording Sheet, student instructions, teacher instructions and Exit Slip! TEKS 5.4E & 5.4F are both addressed in this activity!
Each problem card can be solved using 6 steps. The die chooses which step you must solve the equation to, for example in the problem, 5 + 12 x (2 + 5) ÷ 4 – 7, if a 2 is rolled, you must come up with the 2nd step in the equation. For this example the 2nd step is 12 x 7. In order to know what the 2nd step is, you would have to know that (2 + 5) is your first step which is 7 then your 2nd step is 12 x 7.
The QR Code on the card is the answer to the equation step by step.
Step 6 is always to SOLVE IT! Which means you must work through the entire problem to find the answer.
You can use this as a partner game (instructions included) or use it as independent practice, or even as a small group re-teaching activity!
