Order of Operations Notes and Activities Bundle
The following is included in this bundle. Click the links to get a more detailed description and preview of each individual activity.
1) Cornell Notes to teach/review the Order of Operations. There are 10 practice problems, and room at the bottom for students to summarize what they have learned. Answer key is included.
2) Order of Operations "Cross-Number" Puzzle.
Students work the problems and complete a puzzle that is similar to a cross-word puzzle, but with numbers.
3) Order of Operations "Triples" Activity.
These are 30 cards in which students use the order of operations in order to simplify. There are three cards with the same answer. I have them staple their "triples" together and put them in a bag.
4) Order of Operations "Pluggin' Away" Relay
Students complete a stations relay to practice the order of operations. Each station will require them to fill in a box with the answer to the previous station. This places a huge emphasis on accuracy!
5) Order of Operations "Spin to Win".
This is a very dynamic Power Point game that is used with a Smart Board. Students click on the center of the wheel to start, let it go around a few times, then touch the center to stop. They select that dollar amount from the column on the left. If there is a repeat, I created a few questions per dollar amount, so they just click "next" to move to the next question. When you click “Answer”, the answer is revealed for them to check their work. I also included a worksheet for them to write down and solve the problems as they play the game.
Note – if you don’t have a Smart Board, this game can be played through a computer connected to a projector. Students would come up to the computer and use the mouse to click on the center to start/stop.
5) Order of Operations "Math Lib" Activity!
Students choose expressions to simplify at 9 different stations, and create a story along the way.
