### Description

With this game and additional activities, students can explore why order of operations works. This activity uses arrays as a visual representation of why multiplication must come before additive operations. Traditionally, order of operations is taught using the mnemonic device PEMDAS and lots of practice, but this method does not always reach all students.

Students match a card with a numeric expression to a card with a visual representation of the expression.

Also included are two ideas for using the cards in small groups for students who need extra help AND two extension activities with recording sheets for students to work on individually or in cooperative groups.

This activity uses only positive numbers. Although exponents are included in a few expressions, a set of alternative cards is included so that the exponents can be removed if your students have not yet studied exponents.
