These order of operations worksheets and PEMDAS worksheets help kids in the upper elementary grades gain fluency with increasingly complex math problems. Knowing how to apply the order of operations for mathematical expressions is a crucial skill for kids in fourth grade as they learn how to tackle math problems with multiple steps. Check out our order of operations resources below.
PEMDAS, which sometimes takes the form of “please excuse my dear Aunt Sally,” is an excellent mnemonic that helps kids remember the order of operations:
- P – solve any expressions found within parentheses.
- E – exponents.
- M – multiply.
- D – divide.
- A – add.
