Product Description
This hands-on activity is a great way to get students thinking about the Order of Operations! Common misconceptions will quickly emerge so they can be corrected!

Place students in small groups. Cut the activity sheet into strips and mix them up. Place the *START* strip on the top of the pile, and paperclip them together. Give one stack of strips to each group of students.

Have individual students evaluate the expression in their notebooks before they even remove the paperclip from the stack of strips! Compare solutions, and discuss discrepancies.

Finally, ask the teacher for a glue stick and a blank sheet of paper. Groups sort through the paper strips and glue the steps onto the sheet of paper in the correct order. Students all sign their names to the paper, which is scored however you wish.

NOTE: "Bogus" strips have been purposely included. These contain common errors students make, and many are easily duped! I tell students to beware of the "bogus" steps, but some fall for them anyway. Quick way to see which students have misunderstandings. Three different activity versions are included, as well as detailed teacher notes. :-)

Enjoy!
