Mathematics (4 - 5), or Technology Education (3 - 5)
Please Excuse My Dear Aunt Sally
As a hands-on lesson, the students will recognize the correct usage of the order of operations. In groups, the students will work cooperatively to discover the importance of following step-by-step instructions and apply that knowledge in solving algebraic equations by correctly using the order of operations. This lesson plan was created by exemplary Alabama Math Teachers through the AMSTI project.

Number and Operations Web Links
This collection of Web links, reviewed and presented by Illuminations, offers teachers and students information about and practice in concepts related to arithmetic. Users can read the Illuminations Editorial Board's review of each Web site, or choose to link directly to the sites.
Communicating about Mathematics Using Games: Playing Fraction Tracks
Mathematical games can foster mathematical communication as students explain and justify their moves to one another. In addition, games can motivate students and engage them in thinking about and applying concepts and skills. This e-example from Illuminations contains an interactive version of a game that can be used in the grades 3-5 classroom to support students' learning about fractions. e-Math Investigations are selected e-examples from the electronic version of the Principles and Standards of School Mathematics (PSSM). The e-examples are part of the electronic version of the PSSM document. Given their interactive nature and focused discussion tied to the PSSM document, the e-examples are natural companions to the i-Math investigations.
