What are the steps of the order of operations? Why is it important that you follow the steps rather than solve the problem from left to right? Write an expression for your classmates to simplify using at least three of the operations from the order of operations.

Consider participating in the discussion by simplifying a classmate’s expression, showing how the expression would be incorrectly simplified if computed from left to right, or challenging the class with a complicated expression. Respond to your initial post and provide your classmates with the answer to your expression.
