The Order of Operations tells us how to complete a math problem in the correct order based on mathematical functions. It is also referred to as PEMDAS. This stands for Parenthesis, Exponents, Multiplication, Division, Addition and Subtraction. The slideshow below will further explain the Order of Operations. Be sure to explore the websites, videos, practice sites and games for extra help. Don't forget about your WSQ! Your WSQ will help you with our in class activity tomorrow when we go "shopping" with PEMDAS.
