# Order of Operations

During math, we’ve begun an introduction to the Order of Operations (*PEMDAS*). *P*lease *E*xcuse *M*y *D*ear *A*unt *S*ally! PEMDAS = Parentheses, Exponents, Multiplication & Division, Addition & Subtraction = the order in which to complete a math problem. If after reviewing your child’s work, you see that he/she is having difficulty in this area, please use the video below, **What is PEMDAS?**, as another form of introduction! The games Royal Rescue, Operation Order, and Order of Operations can also help. Step one, parentheses, was already mastered in Trimester One. The trick now is remembering to always multiply and divide before adding and subtracting!
