## Online game for mathematics education

This innovative game requires students to act as virtual personas save seven members of a Royal Family from prison by using their order of operation skills to build stairways leading to their secret cells. Choose your character first and then begin solving the order of operations equation by clicking on the first number, then its operator, followed by the second number. For example, in a problem such 5 + 3 x 2 (6 – 4). The user should click on the 6 first, the “-” second, and the 4 last. Once two numbers and the operator have been clicked on, the program will isolate the problem to solve, in this case 6-4. If the student correctly solves the problem, a second step will appear with the shortened problem: 5 + 3 x 2 – 2. The user would then click on the 3 followed by the “x” and then the two. The resulting problem on the next step would be 5 + 6 – 2 and students would solve the last two problems before successfully saving the first of the Royal family. This game is OUTSTANDING practice in order of operations and one of the only GAMES on the internet reinforcing these skills. The Order-Ops can be played here. |
