This puzzle, along with most of the other puzzles that I write, is an attempt to integrate, review, and blend. I want to integrate more than one subject in a learning activity, cross-curricular learning as it were.
This puzzle blends simplifying order of operation problems from elementary algebra with a history of Savannah. It is a puzzle in the book Fun with Savannah (for the well-rounded puzzler who wants to know more.)
There IS a Prelude that accompanies the puzzle which reviews/explains the process for simplifying expressions using the order of operations for the student (puzzle doer) who needs some take home assistance or review.
There's an Order for Everything, An Order of Operations Savannah Look
