**What’s Wrong?**• Look at both of the problems. • Notice the difference in the way they are solved.**What’s Wrong**• The only difference in the way these problems were done is the order the operations were performed. • The one on the left is correct.**Multiplication and Division**• Multiplication and division are always done left to right. • Remember multiplication is commutative and associative, but division is not. • You can do problems that only contain multiplication in any order, but if division is in the problem, then the order is important.**Examples:**Pause the player Try these three problems on paper Write out all steps Start the player to see the correct answers.**Addition and Subtraction**• Addition and subtraction work the same way. • Subtraction isn’t commutative. • Remember to think “add the opposite” when subtracting, but do it left to right.**Example:**Try this on paper with the player paused. Then play to see the result**MD before AS**• Multiplication and division are always done before addition and subtraction. • Write each step out completely under the previous step. • 3(5)+122 - 2(7) • 15+122 - 2(7) • 15+ 6 - 2(7) • 15+ 6 - 14 • 21 - 14 • 7**Try these.**• Pause the player • Work these on paper, then play to see the answers.**MD before AS**• Multiplication before subtraction. • Note: Write the new problem after multiplying.**Mistakes**• There is a mistake in each of the following problems. • Discover what was done incorrectly. • -20 is correct. • 2 ¼ is correct. • 17 is correct.**E before MD before AS**• Exponents are done before multiplication and division. • Note in the examples, the exponents are done and the rest of the problem is written down. • If you scratch to the side and skip writing all steps, you will make mistakes. • A root is an exponent and also done before multiplication, division, addition or subtraction.**E before MD before AS**• Pause the player. • Try these problems on paper, then play to see the answers.**P then E then MD then AS**• The first thing always done is parenthesis or other grouping symbols. • If there are nested grouping symbols, work from the inside out.**P then E then MD then AS**• Work the inside parenthesis first. • The next set of parenthesis has two operations inside. • Always do multiplication before addition. • Finish the inside of the second parenthesis. • Multiply before adding.**More parenthesis**• Absolute value, division bar and root symbols also act like parenthesis.**Please Excuse My Dear Aunt Sally.**• To remember the order of operations use the mnemonic devise Please excuse my dear Aunt Sally. • The symbol means + and minus. Both answers are used. , ,
