its used to help math student remember the order of operations in this order : parenthesis, exponent, multiplication, division, addition, subtraction.

but sadly in middle school advanced honors math they told me that we use g.e.m.d.a.s. which is the same but the "g" means grouping symbols
P.E.M.D.A.S. IS AN ACRONYM FOR :

PLEASE EXCUSE MY DEAR AUNT SALLY

OR

( ), x2, 2*2, 1/2, 2+2, 2-56.

THE ABOVE OPERATIONS ARE IN MATH FORM AND ORDER

Please Excuse My Dope Ass Swag. This is a mnemonic device to help students remember the order of operations (Parenthesis Exponents Multiplication Division Addition Subtraction) while adding swag to math. Can be used as an expression to describe someone's fresh appearance.
That kid is mad fresh, he is clearly filled with P.E.M.D.A.S.
