Yepp it's PEMDAS technacially BPEMDAS Brackets, parenthesis, exponents, multiplication/division, and addition/subtraction

Haha, it's order of operations. BEDMAS (Brackets Exponents Division Multiplication Addition Subtraction). I didn't learn that until grade 6, and yet a group of 8-year-olds know it so well that they are correcting the teacher?! Man, teaching in schools has certainly changed fast.

Uhm ...no you idiot you do multiplication first even though at least 3 ppl have made a comment about beams you ignore it. 1+1+1+1+1+1x0= 1+1+1+1+1+(1x0)= 1+1+1+1+1+0= 1+1+1+1+1=5 to everyone else I know that there is a simpler way to do this but I'm just explaining it to the ones who don't understand math.

what if the student apparently was a genius but was holding back his knowledge so he could stay with kids his age instead of ending up in highschool at the age of 12 and college at the age of 16.. 0.o

Only if you read the equation from left to right like words from a book and forget to attend to order of operations, which happens to be the subject of this FML, fuckwit. I love how you need to call someone else a retard, as well.

no it's a fml post because kids in 2nd grade get taught order or operations in about 5th-8th grade she said one 2nd grader corrected her so now her whole class is like WTF!??

Unless they were using the word provided by urban dictionary instead of the word provided by a real dictionary. This is the problem with urban dictionary, those of us that aren't hip seem like spelling Nazi's. In any case I think I've heard someone say that word as a joke before, although I think it's spelled geneous. Just to be on the safe side I am responding to #53.

Maybe Swiss kids are just really awesome. They made room in the curriculum for more math education after they stopped teaching them all how to use pikes 2 years ago.

I learned all about multiplaction the second grad including order of operartions. we didn't do exponents until 6 grade.

well actualy in many part of south america and im guessing also in Europe kids learn math faster and more advanced than in the US. My cousin was learning multiplication in 2 grade while I learned it in 3 or 4 in the US.

I learned it in 3rd. and 39(?) I agree order of operations is pushing it but I had a older sister who liked to play teacher and learned a few things early that way. maybe the kid is in a similar situation.

they normally teach the 5's 2's 10's that's what they normally teach but it changes from school to school

Switzerland teaching plans differ from state to state but most teach addition, substraction, multiplication and division between 0 and 100 in the second class.

no, now that schools are pushing kids to learn things sooner than they would normally. new curriculum, you know? but still, no 2nd grader should have to be doing multiplication, let alone the order of operations. I didn't learn about order of operations until 6th grade, and I'm only in 8th.

don't try out for 'are you smarter than a 5th grader' or, y'know, go out by yourself. or answer the door for strangers.

gayboii is from Glasgow, in Scotland we get taught differently from America :) nice to notice another scot on FML

When did you get taught order of operations? I don't know what age a 2nd grade kid is because countries all have different age-to-grade systems. We were taught it year 7 or 8 (11-12 years old 1st or 2nd year of high school)

Depends how old the kid is, we weren't taught order of operations until we were about 11. I don't know how old a 2nd grader would be as we don't have the same grade system here. Before we were taught BODMAS it was always 'go left to right' as they were only teaching us how to add and multiply etc

It stands for the order in which to solve a problem. so its: Bracket, Division, Multiplication, Addition, Subtraction.

84, in the US, 'P' stands for parentheses and other countries, 'B' stands for brackets. Same thing, just different wording.

Reply

Brackets, Orders, Division or Multiplication, Addition or Subtraction. We, in the UK, use Brackets instead of Parentheses and Orders instead of Exponents.

where I go to school we did pedmas, please excuse my dear aunt sally, parentheses, exponents, division, multiplication, addition, then subtraction...in 2nd grade

Reply

#108, Not to sound like a closeminded American, but... I find it a little redundant and unclear to have the word 'order' as a step in the 'order of operations.'

Reply

Some people were taught 'Of' like 'powers of' but a lot of previous pupils at my school were somehow confused by that and they thought we'd be confused by exponents too. If I have to think about it now I use BEDMAS because to me exponents makes more sense to me!

Reply

I learned it in French: PEDMAS=Paranthèses, Exponents (or something like that), Division, Multiplication, Addition, Subtraction

pemdas. whomever put pedmas then please excuse my dear aunt Sally you are retarded because that is pemdas if u make it an acronym. you can't save em all
