This is a worksheet for primarily algebra students who need a review of their order of operations.
Sadly, I often find that many of my students have been taught "PEMDAS" incorrectly, and they believe that you always do all of the multiplication operations before the division, and all of the addition before subtraction. I have to emphasize that multiplication and division are "tied," and to break a tie, you go left to right, just like you're reading a book. (And so on for addition and subtraction).
I use this activity within cooperative groups, and I circulate to make sure they are getting the purpose of the questions.
The file includes spiral review problems.
This worksheet is intended to be written on directly.
