Enhance understanding of the order of operations through our engaging PEMDAS worksheet. The page briefly explains this concept, backed by illustrative examples. Students then solve eight operation expressions using whole numbers and exponents while interacting with the delightful Pemdas pandas that populate the page.

Kids often get the order of operations wrong. They need to understand what each operation (addition, subtraction, multiplication, division, etc.) does and when to apply each operation in the correct order. More often than not, mistakes also occur because they tackle mathematic problems from left to right as if reading a book, ignoring the specific order that should be followed. Despite the common acronym PEMDAS (Parentheses, Exponents, Multiplication and Division, Addition and Subtraction) designed to help remember the order, lack of regular practice can lead to these errors.
