## How do you explain order of operations?

The order of operations tells us the order to solve steps in expressions with more than one operation. First, we solve any operations inside of parentheses or brackets. Second, we solve any exponents. Third, we solve all multiplication and division from left to right.

### What is an easy way to remember the order of operations?

The order of operations is a rule that tells the correct sequence of steps for evaluating a math expression. We can remember the order using PEMDAS: Parentheses, Exponents, Multiplication and Division (from left to right), Addition and Subtraction (from left to right).

#### Why is it important to understand the order of operations?

The order of operations is a rule that tells you the right order in which to solve different parts of a math problem. Subtraction, multiplication, and division are all examples of operations.) The order of operations is important because it guarantees that people can all read and solve a problem in the same way.

**Why do we need to learn order of operations?**

**What grade do you teach order of operations?**

When students in Grades 3 and up initially learn to add, subtract, multiply, divide, and work with basic numerical expressions, they begin by performing operations on two numbers.

## Is Pemdas still a thing?

No. There is a rule called PEMDAS which is wide spread (kids learn “Please Excuse My Dear Aunt Sally”) which when followed asks to do multiplication before division.

### Is Pemdas left to right?

In the PEMDAS rule, we solve operations on multiplication and division from left to right. We can perform any operation, multiplication, or division, whatever comes first in the expression.

#### What is the most important part of using the order of operations?

Subtraction, multiplication, and division are all examples of operations.) The order of operations is important because it guarantees that people can all read and solve a problem in the same way.

**How do you teach order of operations without Pemdas?**
