Product Description
This puzzle requires students to solve a variety of problems involving the order of operations. I purposely included problems such as 6(3+2) and 4(2) to introduce my students to the concept that a number outside a set of parentheses should be multiplied by the value inside the parentheses.

If I simply gave my students the 32 problems in this activity on a worksheet, they would GROAN! But every time I use this puzzle I'm impressed at how motivated students are to work through the problems in order to get to the "fun" puzzle-making.

Please let me know if you have any questions or suggestions. This is my first product I've ever put on TPT, and I hope it turns out to be a good resource for you!

If you liked this puzzle, I also have a similar algebraic expressions puzzle that is a bit more advanced:
