One very powerful reason is: Order of operations is not something that you "do".

'Order of operations' is a rule, method of procedure, standard operating procedure,

and protocol, that guides you in the effective and correct way to actually "do" the things

that you "do" in arithmetic. The calculator is one place where you can 'do' them. Wiki User
