Shahriyar HajghassemHost: Shahriyar is a Maths Teacher at a School in Northwest London, teaching years 7 to 11. He graduated from the University of Warwick in 2013 and set off to China for two years teaching IGCSE and A-Level Economics.

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. For example, in mathematics, multiplication is granted a higher precedence than addition, therefore, the expression 2 + 3 × 4 is interpreted to have the value 2 + (3 × 4) = 14, and not (2 + 3) × 4 = 20.

Today's class will focus on students recognising which operation takes priority which will enable them to correctly solve simple calculations that involve a mixture of operations.
