Unit 1 - Ordering operations

Hello, hello!
Today in Maths we're learning the correct order we need to follow when we're solving an equation. We call this: BODMAS.

Order of operations. Year 6

Equations follow a very simple rule:

So, when we want to solve an equation with different operations in it, we need to follow the order:

  1. Brackets (the calculation inside the brackets comes first)
  2. Orders (numbers involving powers or square roots)
  3. Divisions
  4. Multiplications
  5. Additions
  6. Subtractions
Let's have some examples from Skillsyouneed:





Let's try to do these together:


Here you also have some games to practice the order of operations:


I hope you find these useful!
