# Order of Operations Notebooking Pages

by on May 4, 2011

Do you remember this quirky sentence, “Please excuse my dear Aunt Sally?” That is the mnemonic device commonly used for memorizing the mathematical order of operations.

1. Parenthesis
2. Exponents
3. Multiplication and Division from left to right
4. Addition and Subtraction from left to right

Here is a free, printable notebooking page for writing about the order of operations.

As always, I love to hear when you use the free printables from The Notebooking Fairy in your homeschool. If you send me photos, I will feature you in a Show Off post.

This is helpful and I think I will have my daughter ffill it out and tape into her math notebook.

May I use these in my public school classroom?

Yes, of course!

Hey, Jimmie – what grades are these for? If older ones, you might include roots (like square roots and cube roots) with exponents. Just like subtraction partners with addition (because it really IS addition), and division partners with multiplication, roots are the opposite of exponents and are included (right to left) in that step.
