This fun group activity will not only enhance your students' skills in using the order of operations but will also build their critical thinking and logic skills.
With this activity, your students will...
*Build their algebra skills as they practice using the order of operations
*Deepen their understanding as they help each other solve problems.
*All be involved. Since each student has his/her own paper they are responsible for, it keeps any one member from just sitting back and letting the rest of the group take over.
*Learn how to think critically. Logic puzzles build critical thinking and problem-solving skills (the same skills you need to excel at math!)
*Learn how complex problems can be solved by simply doing the one step you know, then the next step, then the next, until you arrive at the answer.
Great for a group activity or for use in a math center.
