This resource is perfect for introducing order of operations to your fifth, sixth, or seventh grade class with the included interactive notebook materials, two-sided work mat, and order of operations practice pages. The practice pages are leveled so that whether you need problems with or without exponents and with or without integers, you will have what you need.
Interactive Notebook pages
Use the "Cut and Fold" notes to help your students remember the steps to solving order of operations problems. In this resource, we will be using the mnemonic GEMA instead of PEMDAS. See the last page of the preview to learn more about why using GEMA is a great idea for your students. The "Cut and Fold" notes has pieces for your students to cut out and paste inside to help guide their notes, as well as three example problems that show a variety of ways the order of operations appears in expressions.
Order of Operations Work Mat
The Order of Operations Work Mat is two sided, one for typical problems and the other to facilitate student understanding of how to solve expressions written as fractions.
Order of Operations Practice Pages
There are three leveled pages with 10 questions each. Level one and two use only positive numbers with no exponents for fifth graders or beginning practice. Level three uses exponents and integers for full skill development for sixth and seventh graders.
