Conclusion - Students will work collaboratively and independently. This WebQuest will provide tutorials, memory devices, quizzes, games, and problems to analyze that will help students use the order of operations to evaluate mathematical expressions. Students will use algebraic terminology to explain how to evaluate problems during a PowerPoint presentation to the class.
This WebQuest requires students to think critically and be able to work collaboratively. The Math Standards Addressed include:
- Using the correct order of operations to evaluate algebraic expressions, Algebra and Functions.
- Evaluating expressions involving integer powers, Number Sense.
- Using algebraic terminology correctly, Algebra and Functions.
- Expressing the solutions clearly and logically using symbolic and verbal work to explain the solutions, Mathematical Reasoning.
Specific Common Core Standards included: [5.OA.1.] Use parentheses, brackets, or braces in numerical expressions, and evaluate expressions with these symbols. [5.OA.2.] Write simple expressions that record calculations with numbers, and interpret numerical expressions without evaluating them. For example, express the calculation “add 8 and 7, then multiply by 2” as 2 × (8 + 7). Recognize that 3 × (18932 + 921) is three times as large as 18932 + 921, without having to calculate the indicated sum or product.
