Great resource for my students with learning disabilities. Can use as practice as my 6th graders are currently learning how to evaluate expressions. Also, this is a great “go-to” activity when students in grades 6-8 need a refresher/review on the order of operations. Love your work!! Thank you.Susan P.
Fantastic! I need something for my early finishers.Kennda P.
