### What is BEDMAS?

Today at math we were learning BEDMAS.

1st B
- ( brackets )
2nd E- exponents 32, 43
3rd D- division
----M
-multiplication
----S- subtraction

BEDMAS describes as the order of operations or the order of which you operate an equation.

To practice our knowledge, we were given equations to solve:

A. 2+3x4=
2+12=

14

B. 10-6÷2=
10-3=
7

C.(2+3)x4=

5x4=

20

D.(10=6)÷2=

4÷2=

2

E. 8÷22=

8÷4=

2

F. 4x3÷2+5=

12÷2+5=

6+5=

11

G. Create an equation that includes +, -, x, ÷, exponents, and brackets. The answer will equal 6. You can't repeat any number more than once and you can't use zero. Explain why you think my equation is right or wrong. If wrong, give an equation that is right and tell me what I did wrong.

This is the equation I got to get my answer:

(8x4)÷23+(9-7)=

32÷23+(9-7)=

32÷23+2=

32÷8+2=

4+2=

6

1. Good Job JB!!!You explained everything well and found great pictures to explain it.I think Kris,Lizelle,and the others will understand what they missed today.Good Job:)

2. WOW, NICE JOB! You really explained everything well and it is very clear. I really like the "To practice our knowledge, we were given equations to solve:" part. I wasn't expecting that. The equation you did was good, it doesn't repeat any numbers and it has everything in BEDMAS. That is exactly what I have on my notes too. Awesome scribe (:

3. Great job!!!! As Roemer and Kristel said, you explained everything in a way that is easy to understand. I think that the eqation you did for question G was correct because i did the exact same thing. (: Just remember that all of the = signs have to be alined. Other than that you did awsome!

4. Good Job!! You explained everything well. You found a great video that explains BEDMAS. I also like the way you changed the colour in the beginning. Great Job!

5. Great Job Julibella!! :) Very well explained and you sounded very smart(which you are) I can't find any mistakes you did.And the BEDMAS question was correct I didn't get the answer so I asked my cousin for help and the answer was exactly the same.Keep up the good work...GOOD JOB :D

6. Great job, Julie! You had a great picture,link and video. You included everything we did today, and a quick touch-up on BEDMAS. Your answer to question G was correct. Great job! :)

7. Good job! You explained everything we did today very clearly! The way you explained "BEDMAS" was very easy to understand and how you wrote down the questions we did today was very neat. Your answer to question G is correct!! Once again AWESOME job!

8. Good job. BEDMAS is clearly defined and the video and picture relate to it well. Everything is clear, easy to read and it looks nice. Yours is correct. I got this.
(4+3)x2tothethird/8-1=
7x2tothethird/8-1=
7x8/8-1=
56/8-1=
7-1=
6=

9. Nice job! The stuff you explained made sense and you explained BEDMAS specificly. Your answer for G was correct and you showed how you got the answer. It was a good job.

10. Oh wow, great job Julibella. :) Good explaination on all of them. Your answer G was correct, because the steps you did, I also have done that too. Very well made Julibella. Keep up the great work! :D

11. Good job. I like how you changed the colour on the word BEDMAS. Your answer for G. is correct. This is what I got.
(6+1)x 2cubed / 4-8=
7 x 2cubed / 4-8=
7 x 8 / 4-8=
56 / 4-8=
14 - 8=
6=

12. Good Job Julibella. I liked how you put colours on the "BEDMAS." I really dont know how to explain my answer but you follwed the "BEDMAS" correctly.Great Job Anyways!

14. Fantastic job JB! In my opinion your scribe is the best one yet. :D Your scribe is explained well and easy to understand. I saw no mistakes and I like how you changed the colour at the beginning of the scribe.
My answer for the equation is the same as yours.
(8x4)÷23+(9-7)=

32÷23+(9-7)=

32÷23+2=

32÷8+2=

4+2=

Great job!! :D :D

15. Great job! Your explanation of what we did was very good! Your equation was correct. Here's how I did it:
(1 to the exponent 2+3)/4x5+7-6
(1+3)/4x5+7-6
4/4x5+7-6
1x5+7-6
5+7-6
12-6
6
Have a great day! :)

16. Good Job! I like the way you explained the question out. I was having a hard time finding an answer, and i think i agree with everyone else in saying that your equasion is correct!

like the video as well. it explained a question out, and i totally got it!

:]:):D

17. Good Job JB!!!!!!!!!!! I really liked your video.

18. Good job on your blog!!!! I liked how you explaned what bedmas is then showed an exsample. I udrestand what bedmas means it

21. GOOD JOB JB!! You did a awesome job and the anwser you got i got.Here's how I did it
(1 to the exponent 2+3)/4x5+7-6
(1+3)/4x5+7-6
4/4x5+7-6
1x5+7-6
5+7-6
12-6
