Order of Operations for Grade 5

In grade 5, students continue to build on their understanding of the order of operations. The order of operations for grade 5 follows the same principles as in grade 4, but it includes exponents to represent repeated multiplication and nested parenthesis. (refer to the above links if you need to build on your understanding of order of operations)

Here’s the order of operations for grade 5:

1. Perform calculations inside parentheses first, starting from the innermost parentheses and working outward.
2. Evaluate any exponents or powers (repeated multiplication) in the expression.
3. Perform multiplication and division operations from left to right.
4. Perform addition and subtraction operations from left to right.

Example:
Expression: 5 + (3 × 4) - 2²
Perform calculations inside parentheses: 3 × 4 = 12
Expression becomes: 5 + 12 - 2²
Evaluate the exponent: 2² = 2 × 2 = 4
Expression becomes: 5 + 12 - 4
5 + 12 = 17
17 - 4 = 13
Therefore, 5 + (3 × 4) - 2² = 10.
We can write the evaluation like this:
5 + (3 × 4) - 2²
= 5 + 12 - 2²
= 5 + 12 - 4
= 17 - 4
= 13
