# Interactive video lesson plan for: Order of operations - exponents review - pre-algebra/grade 7

#### Activity overview:

I start out with a mini-review of exponents and then we study the order of operations (PEMDAS rule), followed by a few solved examples.

PEMDAS (or Please Excuse My Dear Ant Sally) comes from:

Parentheses
Exponents & roots
Multiplication & Division

I solve these examples using the correct order of operations:

10^2 - 8^2
(10 - 8)^2 - notice this is very similar to the expression above but the parenthesis makes a big difference
24 - 2^3 / 4

In the second part (at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RXijeKvwvZ0 ) we will look at more challenging examples with more operations to solve.
