This Puzzle Strips Activity practices simplifying expressions using order of operations. This set focuses on parenthesis, exponents, addition, and subtraction. A pack of multiple sets using all operations can be found in my TPT store! To prepare: cut apart strips, shuffle for students to solve. Make an extra copy(without cutting) to use as the answer key. To solve: Start with the strip that says 'start.' Simplify the expression in the middle, the answer is the number on the far left of the next strip.
For repeated use, I cut strips apart and laminate them, keeping them in separate envelopes or other individual containers!
