PEMDAS is a common acronym for the Order of Operations. This digital resource for the Google classroom, is scaffolded to encourage independent learning. Students practice progressively more challenging order of operations problems including Addition & Subtraction, Multiplication & Division, parentheses and exponents.
Students practice scaffolded problems. Part of the problem is done for them at first to demonstrate the order, then they move to doing the complete problems independently.
This digital resource shows a slight modification. Multiplication and division are actually done from left to right. Addition and subtraction is also done from left to right. To show this, Multiplication and Division are written on the same line with an arrow from left to right. Addition and Subtraction are written on the same line from left to right.
Each section ends with an “EmojiChallenge.” In the emoji challenge, there are 3-4 math problems with emojis and only a number provided in the answer. Students solve these logic problems to identify what number is represented by each emoji. There are two resource links. One has a hidden answer key for the Emoji Challenges. One does not have the answer key provided for the students for the Emoji Challenges. You can choose which to assign. If you use the one that doesn’t give the answers, you could have a contest to see who can solve it.
