# Project #11521 - The Real Number System and Order of Operations

1. Describe the order of operations and explain how it is used to simplify expressions. Explain specifically the order in which mathematical operations must be performed to correctly simplify an expression.

2. Provide an example of a real life situation where a specific order of steps is necessary for a proper end result. What will happen if the proper order is not followed? (Humor and creativity are encouraged.)

3. Develop an original mathematical expression which must be simplified using order of operations. Include addition, subtraction, multiplication, division, an exponent, and at least one set of parentheses. Simplify the expression incorrectly, showing each step as you simplify. You do not have to include the reasons for each step.

First Response to a Classmate

Find a classmate’s incorrectly simplified expression that has NOT already been corrected by a classmate. Simplify the expression correctly explaining each step. Identify the error, or errors, made.

Second Response to a Classmate

Find and comment on at least one classmate’s correction of an expression. Make sure your comments are substantive and advance the Discussion. If the expression is not simplified correctly, tactfully identify the error and simplify the expression correctly.
