TASK CARD: Order of Operations
2 ways to practice order of operations: Game of envelopes or student cut, arrange and paste cards.
HOW TO PLAY THE GAME OF ENVELOPES
6 Sets of cards (in 6 envelopes), dry erase boards (for each student), dry erase markers (for each student) Recording sheet
1. Students will select an envelope and pull out the cut apart cards. They must arrange them so that they equal the number written on the envelopes
2. When a team has correctly arranged the cards, they should record their answers on the recording sheet. Next, they may place the cut apart cards in that envelope and choose another envelope to solve. There are 6 different envelopes to solve.
: The cards ( they are cut apart and made into envelopes) are the answer keys. You may cut out the envelope # with target number and glue on your envelopes.
Recording sheets, student cut apart cards, scissors, glue
Students will cut, arrange and glue cards on the recording sheet.
The numbers will not be in correct order, just print and have your students cut apart cards, arrange and glue on the recording sheet. The key will be the game cards ( not cut apart)
