5 Songs that teach the "Order of Operations"


After watching countless videos songs covering the order of operations, I narrowed the list down to these five.

Flocabulary - Order of Operations - PEMDAS



Flocabulary is an educational company that produces hip hop songs to help students learn Math and other subjects. Their video are well done, and not cheesy like many educational rap songs can be. Here is how they describe this video," This educational hip-hop song teaches the Order of Operations when evaluating expressions.”
