Order of Operations Bingo
Students will evaluate arithmetic expressions for the equivalent answers, which correspond to numbers on Bingo sheets handed out by the teacher.
This activity's goal is to strengthen the students' understanding of the order of operations for addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division, rather
than applying the acronym PEMDAS. Students can be confused by the fact that in the acronym multiplication comes before division, and addition
before subtraction. They should be brought to understand that when moving left to right, the precedence is equal for both components of each of
these groups.
