BIDMAS lesson activity

(0)
This is a nice activity to get students using BIDMAS. The activity involves students being given a calculation on entering your classroom - print and cut out slides 4-7. The students answer the question (using BIDMAS) to find the location of their seat for the lesson. Each seat in the class will need to be numbered before the lesson - Print slides 8-39. You can give certain students certain questions to ensure they are sat in certain seats. Then, once they've found their seat they should attempt the rest of the questions where the answers are the numbers between 1-32. The great thing about this task is that students often get the answers wrong and you end up getting 2 or more students thinking they are in the same seat, hence discussion occurs as to who is correct! They can then use each other to answer the questions on the worksheet! All answers included.
