Pemdas

Clip to ScrapBook #8

I have my students make a flow map to illustrate PEMDAS. We talk about how M/D & A/D are flexible, that is whichever comes first. I think that some not so strong math teachers have difficulty with this (like me) but once you get it, it makes it easy. I always refer to it as "the dreaded PEMDAS". Students remember it easier because of that catch phase.
