Solve problems by using order of operations to evaluate numerical expressions.

## Use Order of Operations to Evaluate Numerical Expressions

What is a numerical expression? This is a math term that students may begin to hear once they enter 5th and 6th grade. A numerical expression is a mathematical sentence that includes numbers and operation symbols (addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division sign). In order to solve these longer expressions, students must have a firm understanding of the order of operations. This refers to the order in which parts of the number sentence are solved. Your students may have studied how to do this by remembering the acronym PEMDAS or GEMDAS. If you are looking for a worksheet that your students can use to demonstrate their understanding of this skill, look no further!

The goal of this resource is to practice evaluating numerical expressions using the order of operations. On the first page, students must solve 20 numerical expressions and match each expression with an equivalent answer. On the second page, students will answer 5 multiple-choice questions involving order of operations.

Because this resource includes an answer sheet, we recommend you print one copy of the entire file. Then, make photocopies of the blank worksheet for students to complete.

To save paper, we suggest printing this 2-page worksheet double-sided.

Turn this teaching resource into a sustainable activity by printing on cardstock and slipping it into a dry-erase sleeve. Students can record their answers with a whiteboard marker, then erase and reuse them.

Additionally, project the worksheet onto a screen and work through it as a class by having students record their answers in their notebooks.
