Product Description
Triangle graphic organizers for the order of operations, with two similar organizers to be used concurrently. Two different organizers illustrate the fact that division and multiplication (or addition and subtraction) are to be completed in the order they appear, from left to right. If students constantly hear the operations in a specific order, many of them will memorize that and inadvertently solve problems in that order. The use of two graphic organizers with the operations reversed in each section helps reinforce that equal weight is given to "MD" and "AS" in each step. I also usually have my kiddos draw an arrow from left to right in the three lower sections of the triangle just to make it a bit more clear.

I love that the triangle shape takes the form of the problems as they are being solved, too! Each step along the way makes it smaller and smaller, until the work is eventually in the shape of a triangle.

Included in this freebie are paired triangle graphic organizers for the order of operations. One set includes square roots, one does not. Additionally, a blank triangle template is included for students to fill in.
