What are we learning this week?

Week 3/7-3/11  

This week we will be extending our knowledge of expressions by applying what we know about PEMDAS into writing expressions from word problems. (OA.1 & 2)

Students have already learned and practiced using PEMDAS to solve expressions.  This acronym helps students know in what order to solve expressions with multiple operations including parenthesis.

P (Parenthesis)

E (Exponents)

M D (Multiply/Divide from left to right)

A S (Add/Subtract from left to right)
