5th Grade

Welcome to our PEMDAS Problems page.

Here you will find our range of Math sheets which will help your child learn to use parentheses (brackets) and exponents (powers).
There are also lots of sheets to help you practice and master PEMDAS.

Here you will find a range of 5th grade math sheets which will help your child learn to use parentheses and exponents, and practice PEMDAS with a range of equations.

The sheets are arranged in order of difficulty with the easiest sheets first.

Using these sheets will help your child to:

- learn to use parentheses (brackets) and understand how they work;
- learn to use exponents (powers) and understand how they work.
- practice using PEMDAS to solve a range of different problems involving parentheses, exponents, as well as addition, subtraction, multiplication and division.

These pemdas problems are aimed at a 5th and 6th grade level.

PEMDAS (sometimes referred to as PEMDAS, BEDMAS or BODMAS) is a mathematical acronym to help you understand how calculations work.

The acronym refers to the order in which any calculation shold be done, and is typically introduced at around the 5th grade level.

The acronym stands for the following:

- P = Parentheses (Brackets)
- E = Exponents
- D = Division
- M = Multiplication
- A = Addition
- S = Subtraction

One popular way to remember the PEMDAS rule is the saying:

'Please Excuse My Dear Aunt Sally'.

However, the PEMDAS rule is not quite so straightforward as it seems.

If you would like help using this rule and looking at some worked examples, follow the link below.

The sheets below do use the PEDMAS rule, but it is not necessary for you to be familiar with it in order to complete the worksheets.

The worksheets below gradually introduce parentheses and exponents in a simple way so that your child can (hopefully) quickly grasp these concepts before they start solving trickier pemdas problems.

This short video walkthrough shows several problems from our Using Parentheses & Exponents Sheet 5:1 being solved and has been produced by the West Explains Best math channel.

If you would like some support in solving the problems on these sheets, check out the video!

The sheets below use PEMDAS to work out a range of calculations.

The first series of sheets are a great resource for students who are just learning the rule.

The second series of sheets are good for stretching and challenging more able students.

The PEMDAS rule game is a game which involves using brackes, multiplication and addition or subtraction.

The aim of the game is to place digit cards in the pemdas game boards to get as close to the given target as possible.
