- Additional Resources
- Numerous activities are available commercially to offer students practice and reinforcement. Most algebra "games" and activities can be adapted with order of operation problems. You may be interested in visiting:http://www.col-ed.org/cur/math/math56.txt for a game involving dice.
- Remember that it is always possible to individualize instruction by using peer tutors from your class to participate with a single student or small group needing more intensive work with the topic.
- An excellent website offering information about cooperative learning is: http://www.co-operation.org/. This technique takes a bit of practice and planning to be highly effective. However, students are more at ease working with a partner and even that small bit of interaction is usually better than each one working alone.
- You may wish to investigate other tools for interactive practice on the internet . Here are two to get you started:
- An online lesson with interactive quiz at http://www.algebralab.org/lessons/lesson.aspx?file=Algebra_BasicOpsOrderOperations.xml
- An elementary online game with instant feedback at http://www.funbrain.com/algebra/index.html . (You may wish to examine this to determine the appropriateness for your student(s). Some will find it helpful, others may be frustrated or put off by the graphics.)
