In this lesson, students will play an order of operations quiz game and solve math problems. Next, students will follow a step-by-step tutorial in the DIY (do-it-yourself) module to create their own version of the quiz game they just played. They will change the background and costumes, program the Actor to react to correct and incorrect answers, and create new math equations to solve. If students finish early, ask them to look at the bonus section in step 7/8 of the tutorial, which encourages students to use a different Actor and create more order of operation questions.
After completing the DIY module, students will be asked 5 quiz questions involving order of operations. By the end of the lesson, students will have experimented with coding concepts (e.g., input/output, conditionals, messaging, costume handling, basic math) while reinforcing order of operations.
