Interactive Math Activity – Order of Operations with Addition Subtraction, Multiplication, and Division

Help your students become experts in solving math problems using the order of operations! This interactive math lesson will give your students the practice they need to build confidence and proficiency in this fourth grade-level math concept. Students will be presented with a variety of math problems which they will need to solve using their knowledge of the order of operations. This basic algebra math game will strengthen their skills with adding, subtracting, multiplying, and dividing.

This online math lesson features several different question types, including multiple choice, drag-and-drop, and fill-in-the-blank. Here is a sample question your students may be asked: "How would you solve the following expression? 30 – (9 x 8) / 4." The multiple choices include: "First subtract, next multiply, then divide;" "First multiply, next divide, then subtract;" and "First multiply, next subtract, then divide". Here is another sample question: "Which equation is true? 3 + (2 x 8) – 7 = 12 or (3 + 2) x 8 – 7 = 12." In every question, students will be putting their order of operations skills to the test.

Our interactive math lessons, including this fourth-grade math game, offer several features that help students make the most of their math practice time. For example, if your students need a little extra help solving a math problem, they can utilize the "Hint" option on their practice screen. When they click the "Hint" button, they will be shown a relevant pictorial or written clue to help them solve the problem. When students answer a question incorrectly, a detailed explanation will pop up on the screen to help them understand where they went wrong. Each question explanation has a custom illustration to show students, step-by-step, how the problem should be solved. Students will move through the lesson having learned from their mistakes.

Additional components of all interactive math lessons on iKnowIt.com include a progress-tracker that shows students how many questions they have answered so far in the lesson, a score-tracker to let them know how many questions they have answered correctly, and a speaker icon that indicates our helpful read-aloud feature, which is a great option for ESL/ELL students, or students who excel at auditory learning.
