Practically everyone who went through elementary school math classes had to learn the phrase “Please Excuse My Dear Aunt Sally” to remember a concept called Order of Operations. 

A Nottoway Elementary School news release noted that the fifth-grade class at the school was able to soak up some vitamin D while its members practiced their PEMDAS as they took to the sidewalks with chalk and task cards. 

“Keep working hard, fifth grade!” school officials stated. “Practice makes perfect!”
