When you master the basics: addition, subtraction, multiplication and division then comes PEMDAS.
If you are seeking a resource to engage and introduce PEMDAS with elegance and simplicity then this is it.
This packet contains step by step instructions on how to work out PEMDAS equations in a colorful fashion.
All the worksheets are appealing to the eye and have space to work out all the mathematical problems.
Beginning with a handout which will explain what each letter stands for to worksheets that break the problems into easy understanding. These worksheets are perfect for 5th grade students as they make the transition from "easy" math to math with a twist. Students will also learn what is an exponent and how to write in exponential form.
This packet also includes handouts for exponents and the zero exponent rule. While all handouts can be given individually to each student to keep on their folders or glue on their math journals, they can also be used around the classroom as posters.
The worksheets are designed to increase in difficulty as the student progresses through, which means that if there are students who understand the concept they can move on to tougher equations. The colors and graphics that take over the page will make each mathematical problem seem less daunting.
Check out the thumbnail and see how this resource will have all your classroom on the same page on PEMDAS.
At the completion of this package there is a certificate to be awarded for conquering PEMDAS because it is truly a great achievement.
Answer key is included with detailed work on each problem to see where the student might need additional help.
Have a wonderful day!

Write simple expressions that record calculations with numbers, and interpret numerical expressions without evaluating them. For example, express the calculation “add 8 and 7, then multiply by 2” as 2 × (8 + 7). Recognize that 3 × (18932 + 921) is three times as large as 18932 + 921, without having to calculate the indicated sum or product.
Use parentheses, brackets, or braces in numerical expressions, and evaluate expressions with these symbols.
