I had to look up "BODMAS" to understand the quesiton discussed in another meta thread.
I do blame some of the problems I see on the badly chosen mnemomics like BODMAS and FOIL in comparation to the corresponding mnemomics in my country.
Now, I would be quite interested in learning what the mnemomics for BODMAS are in different countries and I think that the audience here is sufficiently international to give an interesting range of answers. (For comparison, instead of "first, inner, outer, last", we learned "each with each" in my country, which both avoids the arbitrary order and generalizes.)
I suspect that this kind of question will get in trouble both because of people who think that it is not mathematics and because of people who think that list questions are from hell.
So, is there a form of the above question that would be welcome here?
