Subject: Mathematics (6 - 7)
Title: Order Among Chaos
Description: This lesson is designed to assist students not only in using the order of operations, but also experimenting with how grouping and ordering affects answers. In groups as teams, the students will compete while finding algebraic expressions using only the numbers 1, 2, 3, and 4, as well as all operations including exponents and grouping symbols, to find a desired integer result.  To gain points, the value of each formed expression must be from the set of integers 1-25 or 1-100 depending on time constraints.  They should attempt to get an expression with each of the listed integers required.  Modeled examples are embedded in the directions slide show so the students are instructed in the process of the competition.
