Evaluate numerical expressions using the order of operations with this math maze!
Order of Operations Worksheet
Are you looking for a unique way for your students to practice evaluating numerical expressions? Teach Starter has developed a resource that is ready for you to use with your students in your math class today! Math mazes are fun for students to practice computational skills without the standard “worksheet” approach.
With this worksheet, students will find their way through a maze by solving a variety of numerical expressions. Students should have an understanding of using PEMDAS or GEMDAS when solving expressions with more than one operation. The problems in this math maze include those with exponents and parentheses.
An answer key is included with your download to make grading fast and easy!
