1. This is a great task for my 5/6 class though I am wondering how you would have them write the equations? I am thinking I would not have them answer the slides with the equation below as that is above their level? I am in Ontario too but usually teach ⅔ so I am just not sure. They have not used n before though I have no problem introducing it if you think it is helpful to jump right into that. I do find my kids this year are all over the map with covid though and I am generally teaching grade 4-6 expectations from every strand.
2. (related question) I am thinking of introducing the order of operations through a task like this where they see it is necessary or useful to them. Would you use this one or suggest another?
