    It sounds like Christmas, but with bread instead. If only addition came before multiplication/division...

    I guess Other is used as it covers both Exponents and Roots. Although BREDMAS has a nice ring to it.

    Parentheses, Exponents, Multiplication <-> Division, Addition <-> Subtraction!

    Other? o___o;;

    We use BODMAS. Brackets Other Division Multiplication Addition Subtraction. WTF is PEDMAS? (Well, I can guess the last four, and now the first one...)

    Even PEMDAS uses parentheses! Unless you use BEDMAS over there...

    Parentheses are sometimes used in that context, but most people I know seem to refer to them as brackets.
    () - Brackets. [] - Square brackets. {} - Curly brackets.

    Whoa really? I thought parentheses was a global word. I had no idea!

    I think I'd call those square brackets too, if only to specify between those and curly brackets, { }.

    Apparently the UK and US differ on this point. Parentheses are called brackets in the UK but parentheses in the US (duh!). Brackets in the US are called square brackets in the UK. I'd never refer to [] as brackets... glad Wikipedia gives me validation in my grammar skills!

    Brackets are like...[ ]. Those are parentheses. :(

    People actually put brackets in to signify this? I just assumed that was their mathematical function.
