Lesson Summary:

In this lesson, we learn about using the order of operations by following PEMDAS. PEMDAS is an acronym that stands for Parentheses, Exponents, Multiplication and Division (from left to right), and Addition and Subtraction (from left to right). We see an example where we have to work on the innermost parentheses first, then look for exponents, and finally, finish off with addition and subtraction. By following these steps, we can simplify the expression and arrive at the correct answer.

Lesson Description:

Using order of operations by following PEMDAS

I show how to solve math problems online during live instruction in class. This is my way of providing free tutoring for the students in my class and for students anywhere in the world. Every video is a short clip that shows exactly how to solve math problems step by step. The problems are done in real time and in front of a regular classroom. These videos are intended to help you learn how to solve math problems, review how to solve a math problems, study for a test, or finish your homework. I post all of my videos on YouTube, but if you are looking for other ways to interact with me and my videos you can follow me on the following pages through My Blog, Twitter, or Facebook.
