Algebraic Thinking and Operations
iPad, Smart Board
The iPads and smart board are a great way to integrate technology into this lesson, however if these are not disposable to you, then you can use a white board, and poster board for the presentations.
Order of Operations Treasure Hunt
Students will work together to solve numeric expressions to reveal clues on where to find the hidden treasure in the classroom. Students can remember the correct order of operations by the acronym Pirates Eventually Make a Sandwich. This is a low cost lesson that can easily be taught with or without technology.
How can I remember which operation comes first? (Remember PEMDAS)
