I know it has been a while since I have written and I was really hoping to catch up on my posts over Christmas break but that didn't happen either!  Just too busy with family.  And that is a good thing!

But since I did bring my books home I am taking the opportunity to upload one picture quickly that I did.  It is on PEMDAS.  I can't take credit for the organzier but it was so long ago I can't remember who I "stole" the idea from.  Feel free to claim credit if it was you!  I am uploading it in response to this picture that is circulating on Facebook.  I CANNOT believe the number of people getting it wrong?  The tag with it says that 9 out of 10 people do not answer this correctly!  I am really hoping this is not true but I was astounded at the number of incorrect answers that were listed below it! 

I think next  year when I teach it I will definitely point out all the "facebook" problems that circulate. :)


  1. Ooohhh! Good one! 9 right? I assume that many would say the answer is 1.

  2. It should be 9 but people were adamantly arguing that it is 1 b/c multiplication comes first. I just know that their math teachers are cringing like us when they read the posts! :)
