Order of Operations Part 1 – Concept [Video – 6:33] (2011)

This brief video tutorial explains the concept of order of operations in mathematics problems.

The instructor narrating the video explains that when a problem contains some combination of addition, subtraction, multiplication or division, the order of operations specifies that the multiplication and division components must be completed first, before carrying out the addition and subtraction work. It is possible to get two very different answers, depending upon whether or not the order of operations is followed.

The video shows several relatively simple math problems being solved on a computer screen while the instructor explains the material.
