# Mrs. Reeg's Math Class News

## This Week In Math:

This week in math we learned about the order of operations, moving slowing into solving problems with parentheses, brackets and braces. We learned how to use the acronym Please Excuse My Dear Aunt Sally to help us solve problems using the order of operations step by step. On Wednesday we worked in Math Centers with Mr. Hurtack, our Gifted Intervention Specialist and Mrs. Tatarunus, our Technology coach. This week we will practice solving problems using brackets and braces. We will finish chapter 2 this week with a test on Friday. Below I included two order of operations videos.
