# Order of Operations Graphic Organizer with Grouping Symbols

I created this order of operations graphic organizer for our Algebra 1 interactive notebooks.

My students may have been looking at order of operations problems for years, but these problems most likely didn’t contain grouping symbols such as absolute value bars, radicals, or fraction lines. My students need practice with this broader definition of grouping symbols than just the parentheses that they learned about from Please Excuse My Dear Aunt Sally.

I gave students a blank order of operations template, and we filled in the meaning of each of the letters. I made a big deal of emphasizing that multiplying and dividing are really the same operation so we do them from left to right. Same with addition and subtraction.

I really liked the Grouping Symbols poster I created last year, so I decided to turn it into a notebook page.
