Order of Operations Match Up: Students work with a partner.
Partner 1 solves all of the questions in column A while partner 2 solves all the questions in column B. After both partners are finished they compare answers. Each partner should have gotten the exact same10 answers, just in a different order. If there is an answer that doesn’t match up, students use error-analysis skills to look over each others work and find the mistake.
Order of Operations Relay:
Class is divided into groups of 4.
Each team starts with Problem #1. Keep problem face down until teachers says to begin!
Student 1 completes the first step and re-writes the problem in the first box. student 2 completes the 2nd step and re-writes the problem. Student 3 and 4 do the same, ending with the answer to original problem.
The first team to finish the problem correctly gets a point for their team.
If no team ends with the correct answer, teams can pick on member to recheck all steps and offer an new answer OR, a point can be awarded to the team that has them most steps correct.
Every team moves on to problem #2, then #3, #4, and finally #5. Points are tallied after all 5 problems are solved. The team with the most points wins!
*** FUN TWIST: Write a secret message on the board (like you would for hangman). The team that wins the first relay problem gets to pick a letter. However many times that letter appears in the message is how many points that team gets IN ADDITION to the point they got for being the first team to solve the problem correctly. The benefit of adding this twist is that every team has a chance to win right up until the very end.
