The order of operations (BIDMAS) is a collection of rules that tell us which operations to perform first in order to evaluate a given mathematical expression. This class will focus on  which operation takes priority to ensure that students correctly solve simple calculations that involve a mixture of operations. By the end of the lesson, students will be able to list the correct order of operations, know what equal priority means and apply this knowledge to solve problems. This class is aimed at students in Years 7 - 9 but is beneficial to any maths student!
