Powerpoint lesson with a work booklet and tick or trash AFL activity on the Order of Operations (BIDMAS/BODMAS). Skills covered include - using order of operations without brackets or indices, using it with indices and brackets, inserting brackert into questions to make them correct.
Time saving resource for busy teachers! You should be able to teach a lesson with hardly any preparation (mainly printing and maybe some cutting!). Fully differentiated objectives:
Blue:Know and use the order of operations with simple calculations (no brackets)
Gold:Use the order of operations with more complex calculations including brackets and indices
Red:Insert brackets into questions to make them correct, work out questions with more than one set of brackets.
This resource includes:
• A PowerPoint
• A differentiated Work booklet that includes self-assessment sections
• A tick or trash activity (this could be done alone or in pairs, or in groups!)
The PowerPoint includes everything you need to teach order of operations, including animated examples. The lessons use the following format:
• Objective and levels
• A short starter that can lead into a discussion about BIDMAS
• A “how to teaching portion” with animated examples
• An AfL miniwhiteboard quiz
• Answers to all the booklet questions
• Plenary (with answers)
The powerpoint and booklet are currently set up for GCSE maths grades, however you can edit the grades to reflect KS3 or your own schools assessment criteria. In the word booklet if you change any grade (e.g the blue section) it should automatically change the rest of that colour into the same grade.
This will take up a whole lesson.
I also have a differentiated set of worksheets on Order of operations available here.
