Subject: Re: order of operations

You can play "Order War". You'll need to make 20 or so game cards with
various order of operations problems on them.  Each team of two will
need these cards.  Two players shuffle the cards and divide them
equally.  Each player simultaneously turns over one card from his pile
and evaluates the expression.  The player with the greatest value wins
the two cards.  The winner is the player with the most cards.  If two
players have the same value, they go to war; turn over two more cards,
evaluate the expression, and whoever has the greatest value wins all
four cards.
