C7’s Week

Numeracy and Maths – BODMAS

This week we have been learning about BODMAS and how it works. We learned that there are rules for the order that we work out a number sentence in if there are more than one operation. For example if there is adding and multiplying in the same number sentence, we need to do the multiplying first.

BODMAS stands for:

Brackets

Operations

Division

Multiplying

Adding

Subtracting

BODMAS gives us the order that we have to answer mixed number sentences in.

Here’s an example:

2 x 2 + 10 x (18 – 4)²

2 x 2 + 10 x 14²

2 x 2 + 10 x 196

4 + 1960 = 1964
