Here are 3 Ways to Make Sure They Understand The Order of Operations
1.) When you are working through the Guided Notes make sure you are having them do the problem with you on the board then re-walk them trough it on the calculator. It takes more time but this is kind of the most important lesson of the year 🙂
2.) Keep in mind that everything you teach them here needs to be able to be "undone!" Meaning, when they learn how to factor any tricks you teach them won't help! They need to understand when to follow the order of operations and when they are "undoing" it.
3.) Use Visuals like this one! Print it out! Hang it up!
