PEMDAS Gets Lost: Using the order of operations to simplify expressions and solve equations (Paperback)
Usually Ships in 1-5 Days
A young squirrel named PEMDAS decides math is a silly game to play. But once he gets lost in the woods, a new friend shows him it can be fun to follow the steps back home. Written by a certified middle school math teacher, "Math Is Nuts" books read like entertaining children's stories, rather than educational texts. Each step to solving a math problem is illustrated simply and clearly, with the abstract numbers and operations facing whimsical watercolor characters and a plot to make the problem meaningful and memorable. The text is suitable for older children to read independently, but it is also great for parents, grandparents, teachers, and mentors to read and talk about with children of any age. "PEMDAS Gets Lost" focuses on using the order of operations to both simplify multi-step expressions and to solve equations. These skills are generally taught in the middle school grades. Only whole numbers and an exponent of two (squaring) are used to target the order of operations skills. Fractions, decimals, and more exponents can be found in other books of this series coming soon.
