ORDER OF OPERATIONS IN EXPRESSIONS. BRACKETS. THE COMBINING PROPERTY OF ADDITION
. How are the expressions in each pair similar and different?
1)83 + 4 2) 961
8 – (3 + 4) 9 – (6 – 1)
Compare your answer with Misha’s and Masha’s answers.
I noticed that in each pair, the numbers and operations are the same.
And I noticed the difference. The second expression has parentheses, which the first expression doesn’t have.
Signs ( ) are called parentheses. They indicate which action should be performed before others.
1) 8 – (3 + 4) 2) 9 – (6 – 1)
If there are no parentheses in the expression, the actions are performed in order from left to right.
1) 8 – 3 + 4 2) 961
The expression 8 – (3 + 4) is read as: “Subtract the sum of three and four from eight”.
1 2
The expression 8 – 3 + 4 is read as: “Add four to the difference between eight and three”.
• Arrange the order of operations in the expression 18 – (6 – 4) and read it.
Compare your answer with Misha’s answer.
Subtract the difference between six and four from eighteen.
Can this expression be read differently?
• Arrange the order of operations in the expression 1864 and read it.
Compare your answer with Misha’s and Masha’s answers.
Subtract four from the difference between eighteen and six.
Subtract six from eighteen, and then subtract four.
• Who is right: Misha or Masha?
• Define the order of operations and read the expressions in each pair.
Calculate the values of the expressions in each pair.
In which pairs are the values of the expressions the same, and in which pairs are they different?
• Find the rule by which the columns of expressions are constructed.
Create columns using the same rule for the expressions:
1) 18 + 30 + 40
2) 40 + 8 + 50
3) 12 + 3 + 20
Calculate the values of all the expressions.
What did you notice?
You can replace two adjacent addends with the value of their sum.
This is the distributive property of addition.
(10 + 5) + 3 = 10 + (5 + 3)
You can use the distributive property of addition when calculating the values of expressions.
. Which expression in each pair will you use to calculate the result?
• Show with parentheses which two addends you will replace with the value of their sum in order to find the value of each expression.

• Think about what arithmetic operations need to be performed to answer the question of each problem.
In class, there are 10 girls and 20 boys. How many students are there in total?
Petya has 12 stamps, and Ira has 9. How many more stamps does Petya have than Ira?
Compare your answer with the answers of Misha and Masha.
In the first problem, you need to combine the girls and boys together and perform addition of the numbers 10 and 20.
In the second problem, you need to subtract the number of stamps that Ira has from the number of stamps that Petya has, and perform subtraction of the numbers 12 and 9.
