Order of Operations Dice Game

PDF | 6 pages|Grades: 5 - 6

A set of 6 order of operations dice activity mats.

Use this activity with your students to practice using order of operations.

Students roll a die for each box in an equation. Then, they choose carefully where to place each number and solve the equation using order of operations.

To make the game more challenging, have your students use a 10-sided or 12-sided die instead of the standard 6-sided die. The game mats increase in difficulty to help differentiate based on student ability.

Print the game boards on cardstock and place each one in a dry-erase sleeve for students to use with a dry-erase marker. These are great to use in a math center rotation or as a fast finisher activity.

Use the drop-down menu to choose between the color or black and white version.
