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.

- Parenthesis
- Exponents
- Multiplication and Division from left to right
- 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.

May I use these in my public school classroom?

Jimmie Lanley says

Yes, of course!

Bon Crowder says

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.

You have great ideas that are outside the box and make it more interesting for learning!

Cheryl says

I am a very visual learner and while I like these graphic organisers I would like to see completed examples at a junior, middle and upper level. It also helps with the amount of information one needs to remember in a modern classroom so having completed examples for the students to refer to aids the development of their own accountability for learning and problem solving. More able students are able to refer to these when helping other students, again without needing the teacher to hold their hand. For me it is less work as I don’t have to sit and fill in an example for each organiser.
