## Generators

Below you'll find TWO worksheet generators for the order of operations. The first one works best approximately for grades 1-5, and the second one for grades 5-9. Both let you customize the worksheets, in different ways.

- The first generator (grades 2-5) lets you choose from
**five different operations**to include (the four basic operations plus exponents), choose to include**parentheses or not**, and choose the basic**number ranges**used in the different operations. You can use decimals or whole numbers.

This generator uses the symbol × for multipliciation and ÷ for division, as is customary in elementary grades. You can also control the workspace below problems, font size, and the border around each problem.

Unfortunately, the first generator does__not work correctly__if you include*both*exponents and parenthesis. Sorry about that! However, I feel it is STILL very useful for what it does do. - The second generator (grades 6-9) includes by default all four operations and parenthesis. You can choose to include exponents or not. The second one uses a raised dot (·) for multiplication (as is customary in algebra). It uses a fraction line for division, and thus
__involves fractions__. Again, you can include decimals or not, control the number of problems, workspace below the problems, font size, and whether there is a border around the problems.
