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. :)

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

ReplyDeleteIt 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! :)
