This order of operations game is an easy-prep, fantastic way for students to practice these concepts!

  • This math review game has 36 cards, with a choice of question types:
    • A "truth," which is a true or false question addressing order of operations rules or basic order of operations problems
    • Or a "dare," which includes more challenging problems to evaluate

  • The different cards have different point values for students to earn. Students record their answers and points on their recording sheets.

Check out this video to see how the game works.

These cards require students to:

  • Identify order of operations rules
  • Evaluate expressions that include exponents
  • Evaluate expressions that include grouping symbols
  • Evaluate expressions, given a value for a variable.

Great to play in groups of 3 - 4, but group size can vary....the smaller the group, the more questions each student will answer. Great for a center activity.

Activity includes:

  • Detailed directions
  • 36 cards (a set WITH background AND a set WITHOUT background - SAME set, just the option of a background for you when you print them)
  • Recording sheet
  • Answer key
  • Blank cards in case you want to add your own questions

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️"My students LOVED playing this. It was challenging enough to keep them engaged and I loved the conversations that they were having as they worked through the problems on the truth and dare cards. Thank you for this great resource!"

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️"I love all of the Truth or Dare games! This one is fantastic because it incorporates a variety of different questions for order of operations, with brackets and exponents and not the same structure but with different numbers each time."

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️"My students love this activity! It's a great resource for centers!"

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ "I love to use games in class so this was something different for us to try. The students liked it so it was a win!!"
