6th Grade Order of Operations Worksheet

Introducing our new worksheet designed to help students master the challenging concept of evaluating expressions by using their understanding of order of operations. This worksheet features a total of 10 problems, including 8 standard practice problems and 2 word problems where students will evaluate numerical expressions with multiple operations, groupings, and exponents.

The 8 standard practice problems are designed to help students understand the complex rules of exponents, parentheses, and the order in which operations are performed. 

The 2 word problems, on the other hand, are designed to help students apply what they have learned to real-world situations. These problems will challenge students to think critically and to use their knowledge of expressions to solve practical problems. 

An answer key is included with your download to make grading fast and easy!
