Students will use order of operations (PEMDAS) to evaluate 12 expressions and then color the picture using the solutions. (Pro tip: Students can cut out the heart and write a note to their Valentine on the back. It makes a great gift for moms!)
This resource allows teachers to differentiate instruction for students who have various levels of mastery. The worksheets come in 3 difficulty levels, so you may choose the one best suited for your students:
Level 1 - 2 steps with no parentheses
Level 2 - 3 steps with parentheses
Level 3 - 3+ steps with exponents
For your convenience, the answer key includes both the mathematical answers and an example of a correctly finished coloring page.
