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.
