My name is Kim Harpe and I am currently a sophomore at Grand Valley State University. I live in Grand Rapids, MI and have a one year old daughter. I hope to become a bilingual math teacher for middle school students. If you would like to know more or just to talk feel free to email me from the link below.
There are different ways to remember the order of operations. I suggest PEMDAS (that is parenthesis, exponents, multiplication and division, addition and subtraction). You can memorize the word PEMDAS, remember it by making it into a sentence such as Please Excuse My Dear Aunt Sally, or think of your own creative way.
Take a look at what some students did to remember their order of operations.
