Fun math practice for evaluating mathematical expressions using the order of operations! Students will evaluate twelve expressions (increasing in difficulty) which use a combination of brackets, braces, and parentheses. Then using their answers and the legend, they will solve the puzzle on the back to answer a riddle!
My 5th graders LOVED this worksheet! They are constantly asking me for more worksheets like this! There is something about solving a puzzle that makes doing all of that math fun!
I love these too because the students can self-correct if the answer they come up with to the riddle doesn't make sense!
