Today we started working with Order of Operations (OoO as I like to call it).

The Order is:

Parentheses- Do everything inside the parentheses first.  Follow the OoO inside the parentheses.

Exponents- Simplify (solve) the exponents. Be careful to ensure you do them properly.

Multiplication/Division- Working from left to right (like a normal sentence) complete the division and multiplication problems as you see them.

Addition/Subtraction- Working from left to right (like a normal sentence) complete the subtraction and addition problems as you see them.

Be sure to rewrite the problem after each step to ensure that you don't forget any parts.

Tonight's homework is Worksheet 2-8.  I will let you know in class which problems to do!  (There won't be many!)

Some OoO help below...  :)

From Mrs. Glosser's Math Activities:  Order of Operations

Tutorial and practice problems from Amby's Math Resources:  Tutorial and a "Pre-test"

Fun Brain fill in the blank problems:  Games

Interactive activitiy where you just click on the operations (no calculations): click activity  (make the window bigger to play!)

AWESOME game where you can make your own image play (mine below):  Millionaire game

Video help:

A song to help you remember the order: 

There are TONS of PEMDAS videos online.  I will report tonight or tomorrow with some of the best ones!

Have a great night and don't forget to wear Blue and Green tomorrow for Earth Day!
