# Order of Operations Notebooking Pages

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.

#### Jimmie Quick

Jimmie is now a veteran homeschool mom. Her daughter Emma is a student of the sciences at a large university in Illinois. Her guide to notebookingâ€”Notebooking Successâ€”guides you through notebooking: what it is; how to use it; how it fits a Charlotte Mason, classical, and textbook curriculum; tips for getting the most educational value from it; and much more. It comes bundled with several bonuses, including a small set of generic notebooking pages that can be used with any topic.

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

Your ideas and printables are awesome. I wish I could afford to subscribe. Maybe later. Thank you.

Emma, there is no cost to subscribe to The Notebooking Fairy. Absolutely free by email or by feed reader!

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.
