The Virginia Math SOL 5.7 has students using the order of operations without exponents. Not many resources have expressions without exponents so I had to create resources to use for this SOL.
The VA Standard for Order of Operations states:
The student will use problem solving, mathematical communication, mathematical reasoning, connections, and representations to
Use the order of operations to simplify whole number numerical expressions, limited to addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division. Expressions may contain parentheses.
Given a whole number numerical expression involving more than one operation, describe which operation is completed first, which is second, etc.
This resource includes an anticipatory set of comparing the order of expressions and challenging students to explain why their answers are not the same; highlighting which step comes first in an expression; Interactive Notebook page for Order of Operations Notes; and a practice sheet to go into Interactive Notebooks.
