PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

It’s About Time- A PEMDAS Computation Activity is a fun order of operations math challenge for those outside-the-box thinkers in your classroom.

Using the same four numbers, students have to find twenty-four different solutions. Differentiation is built in, based on the complexity of their equations, as well as their use of exponents, multiplying and dividing fractions, and parentheses and brackets. The other plus to this activity is that many of the answers have more than one solution. (I’d say all, but I haven’t tested that out completely. Let me know.)

Additional Uses- This problem is great for centers, go-to activities or the need for a quick “Plan B” switch in your schedule. It also makes a great sub activity with a potential to last two or three days, depending on how many of the extension you choose to do.

I've included possible solutions and answer keys for two of the extensions.

This fun activity is now part of the bundle, Math Games Galore!
