# Order of operations snake and ladder game

#### Addition

Since there can be only one correct answer in math, it is important that your child does mathematical operations in the right order. Wrong sequence of computation will end up with the wrong answer. The basic skills that they need to learn order of operations are multiplication, division, addition, and subtraction. As such, practice their familiarity with order of operations with this snakes and ladders online on order of operations game. One way to remember the order is using the word PEMDAS (Parentheses, Exponents, Multiplication and Division, Addition and Subtraction). For better recall, treat is as, “Please Excuse My Dear Aunt Sally.” So, we’ll ask you: What is the sum of (3-2) + 18? By PEMDAS rule, you have to subtract 2 from 3, which gives you 1. Add 1 to 19 and you’ll have 19! Now, let’s try a harder equation: (3-2) + (7-3) + 20. First, subtract 3 and 2 as well as 7 and 3. It will give you the numbers 1 and 4 respectively. Add these numbers to 20 and you get 25!
