Students will understand the history and the purpose of The Order of Operations from this short reading and math freebie. It fully explains what the order of operations really is and why we need it. It contains the "big idea" of the history behind the concept.
I've included a reduced-size version of the reader for students to attach into their math notebooks or INBs. I've included vocabulary posters and a display of PEMDAS.
