BIDMAS - Order of Operations (KS3 & GCSE style questions) - includes a CATCHPHRASE activity

Ideal resource for when you are teaching BIDMAS (order of operations) to either Years 7-9 or to pupils taking their GCSE. The GCSE questions are similar in style to the new GCSE practice questions (AQA).

Includes the following:

Plenty of examples for the teacher to model to pupils, plus 30 practice questions of increasing difficulty
Extension / GCSE harder questions to model to pupils, 12 practice questions in the form of a catchphrase activity. Answer: Keep an Eye on Things
Additional slides with other types of BIDMAS questions (e.g. put brackets into calculations to make the largest sum)
A great plenary activity - BIDMAS Bingo.

Thanks for looking. Mr Cullen
