Description

Complete various types of problems associated with the order of operations before working to create problems that reach a target number and use specific operations.Students will first list an acronym of their choosing that helps remind them of the order of operations, e.g. BODMAS, BOMDAS, etc. Then they will complete traditional order of operations problems before looking at problems that require brackets to be added to be correct.The final task sees students create problems of their own that reach a target number and use the specified operations.There are three versions of this worksheet that are differentiated as follows:
  1. Contains brackets, multiplication and division, addition and subtraction.
  2. Contains the above, introduces powers and multiple sets of brackets in question 3.
  3. Contains the above, introduces square roots and contains nested brackets in question 3.
Print one page per student, or if working in small groups, place a few sheets into write-and-wipe sleeves and reuse them for each group of students.Updated 15/7: fixed an error on pg. 1-2
