Essential and guiding questions:

Questions for Students:

- The order of operations says to multiply and divide first. What does this mean?
- What does it mean for addition and subtraction to have the same precedence?
- In the expression 3 + 4 × 5 – (3 + 2), explain the order in which the operations should be performed, and evaluate the expression.
