There are three sets of Order of Operations Worksheets:
Order of Operations (+, -, ×, parenthesis)
Order of Operations (+, -, ×, ÷, parenthesis)
Order of Operations (+, -, ×, ÷, parenthesis, exponents)
Examples, solutions, videos, and worksheets to help Grade 4 students learn how to use the order of operations for addition, subtraction, multiplication, division, and parenthesis.
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:
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
Perform addition and subtraction:
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
