How many Mathematical Mishaps did you get right?
Three... Excellent. You are a mathematics
Two... Good. You had a single misstep.
One... Oops. You tripped.
None... Ouch. You fell.
These Mathematical Mishaps tested your knowledge of the Order of
If you had a misstep, tripped, or fell, read on and learn how to use the
Order of Operations. If you don't understand the Order of Operations,
you'll have trouble with everything from Pre-Algebra to Calculus.
