On the board to help the students remember the order of
operations in the beginning. Pick five volunteers. Assign each volunteer an
operation. One will look for parentheses, one will look for exponents, one will
look for multiplication and division, one will look for addition and
subtraction, and the last will be a checker- making sure that we move from left
to right if there’s two equal operations.

Write a problem on the board. Point out that we’ll look
to the student in charge of parentheses first to see if they have some work to
do. Then the student in charge of exponents, then student in charge of
multiplication and division (double checking with the left to right student),
and lastly the addition/subtraction student (double checking with the left to
right student.) Do this a couple times then begin asking the class which
student you should pick next for the problem- the exponent student or the
parentheses student? Can we move onto the multiplication/division student now?
Did we double-check with our left to right student?

When things are running smoothly, pick five new
volunteers. Repeat the process.

When the students seem to be getting a hang of it- hand
out a worksheet that has problems involving orders of operations. Break the
students into group of fives and let them pick (or assign) which job they want.
They will complete the worksheet together- each student looking for their
operation. Half-way through the worksheet they’ll switch jobs.

Continue your main order of operations lesson plan and
evaluate with a quiz.
