*Order of Operations*

*Order of Operations*

June 8, 2016

Hey everyone!

Â

This week we are starting our unit on Order of Operations - unfortunately this has nothing to do with the popular 80's board game but I still thought it was a pretty good picture!

Â

Order of operations just means the order in which we complete a mathematical operation. It has been described in many ways including some of the following:

Â

BIMDAS

BODMAS

PEMDAS

PIMDAS

Â

and there are others...

Â

Basically they all boil down to the mean the same thing - just using different language. We need to understand order of operations so we can calculate math equations correctly. This is something you will come to rely on heavily as your learning progresses.

Â

You can get a copy of Miss Anderson's PowerPoint from here lesson today here.

Â

Here is some extra information that might also help you in your journey over the coming week!

Â

Introduction to order of operations video - Khan academy (I mean really...who doesn't love a video!)

Â

Math antics order of operationsÂ - this is a great video from Math Antics. Check out the sweet mustache and glasses at 0.49!

Â

Â

Order of operations explained - Math is fun! - It's true. Math is fun! Hopefully you can all see that now :)

Â

Order of operations task cards - just in case you would like to do some extra practice in your own time (answers included to check)

Â

Order of operations worksheets. These get progressively more difficult but are great for practicing your skills - worksheet 1, worksheet 2, worksheet 3, worksheet 4, worksheet 5

Â

Finally - but importantly - here is a link to a great maths dictionary you can use in case you forget what some of the words in BIMDAS mean (like brackets or index/indices).

Â

I might post some more resources as we delve a little further into our unit. Please let myself or Miss Anderson know if there is anything else you think could support your learning!

Â

Take care
