Shouldnt it be BPMDAS?!?

Nothing really useful to add, but as a child who really struggled with maths, I would have found that abbreviation so useful. My higher maths was achieved more through stubbornness than understanding.....

Kim - I know, but P for power makes more sense than I for Integer or O for order - I could never remember what that was supposed to stand for... Although powers are intuitively something to do early on.

It was BIMDAS for us in Australia. As others have pointed out, it doesn't actually matter which way around the M and D are anyway.
