Reviewer Comments:

A lesson on order of operations using parentheses. Unfortunately there is an incorrect assertion (4 * 2 = 8) and an incorrect explanation (exponent before multiplication because they are the same thing) a simple example of why this is not so would have been very useful (eg 5 x 3 * 2). The last group exercise, generating all te numbers from 1 to 20, is particularly fun and illustrative.
