Mr. Stauffer's Class
This week we are starting SOL 5.7, Order of Operations. Students will learn how to simplify whole number numerical expressions, using the order of operations, limited to parentheses, multiplication, division, addition, and subtraction. They will using the acronym PEMDAS to help solve. This will help them remember the steps and the order in which they are to be used.
