## Numeracy: The Basics Workbook – Set M: Order of Operations & Decimals (2012)

Workplace Education Manitoba (WEM) has developed a video series entitled Numeracy: The Basics, consisting of 50 videos that cover the theory and practice of 25 numeracy topics.

WEM has also developed a series of 25 workbooks to accompany the video series, and provide learners with more opportunities to practise their math skills.

This workbook and the corresponding videos combine two topics that were introduced earlier in the series: working with decimals, and the order of operations, which specifies that the multiplication and division components of a math problem must be completed before carrying out the addition and subtraction work.

Learners build on skills developed through earlier lessons by solving problems that involve decimals, which means they must pay particular attention to the placement of the decimal as they complete each calculation.

The corresponding videos are available here http://library.copian.ca/item/10315 and here http://library.copian.ca/item/10316.
