Product Description
This small-group activity is designed to provide practice and review with two and three-step order of operations problems, and it allows you to differentiate!

Simply run on colored card stock and cut apart. For durability and ease of use, we recommend laminating, mounting on foam sheets, magnetic backing can be added, too.

The activity contains:
-A hundred expressions, organized by answers (0-12). These include twenty-five expressions with exponents. Originals can be used as an answer key. (Expressions with exponents can be used in conjunction with the other 75, removed, or used separately for differentiation.)
-Two train engine templates and a set of equal signs for creating Equation Expresses
-Blank expression template for creating additional expressions
-Equation Express II Order of Operations b/w visual for student interactive notebooks
-Equation Express II Order of Operations color visual for classroom display

Directions:
Make copies, cut apart, laminate and customize as desired. Give each engine a number (0 - 12). Provide students with engines and expressions. Students then find the expressions equal to the given engine number. Link the expressions with equal signs, and create each Equation Express! (See thumbnail.) We have had success using the Equation Express II - Order of Operations in small groups of 2 to 4 students. More advanced students may benefit from working solely with the expressions with exponents, or from writing their own expressions. The Equation Express I (a free download) can be used for a group in need of remediation/review with basic facts and concepts. While we encourage the use of mental math, accommodations can easily be incorporated. Enjoy!!
