This 5-day project-based math resource applies math concepts in a real-world scenario to teach students about **order of operations**. In this** 5-day unit**, students will solve equations using order of operations to plan a summer barbecue. This order of operations math project is engaging and authentic. Plus, it’s available as both a digital and print resource.

This project-based math resource covers concepts of evaluating expressions using order of operations and is **aligned with the following 5th Grade Math Common Core State Standards:**

CCSS.MATH.CONTENT.5.OA.A.1

Use parentheses, brackets, or braces in numerical expressions, and evaluate expressions with these symbols.

CCSS.MATH.CONTENT.5.OA.A.2

Write simple expressions that record calculations with numbers, and interpret numerical expressions without evaluating them. *For example, express the calculation “add 8 and 7, then multiply by 2” as 2 √ó (8 + 7). Recognize that 3 √ó (18932 + 921) is three times as large as 18932 + 921, without having to calculate the indicated sum or product*.

**This resource is available in both Printable & Digital Google Slides versions.**
