Yes AD you're right about BODMAS and Every Good Boy Deserves Favour being the lines on the treble stave (also an album by The Moody Blues). The third one is as you suspected guitar strings in standard tuning. I learnt all the trig ones as a triangle - works for anything with three terms. Let's face it MR some of us have got strange ideas of fun Big grin

The following was drilled into me whilst attending KHVIII many years ago: Some Men Have Easy Occupations. Alternatively: Should Mad Hatters Eat (Fresh) Oysters?

We were also taught that method in our first year at Stoke Park, but the inspirational Mrs. Sayers helped us remember it by: Sir Oliver's Horse Came Ambling Home To Oliver's Aunt And 3 decades or so later I still found that useful when I wanted to work out how to make our folding staircase for the attic!

I'd never heard the ones for the great lakes Beesman but then I'm not sure that they were ever mentioned. Too much stuff about market gardening in the Vale of Evesham. Rob, I think everyone learned something different for sine, cosine and tangent. I was taught by my Dad, by listening him try to teach my brother. Those small pink hippos appealed to a 11 year old girl more than a 13 year old boy, before I knew anything about the maths.

Of course, hee hee! Nice one. Stuff should always be taught with a comedy song. I haven't listened to much of their stuff. I'm enjoying the oldies at the moment. Randall & Hopkirk on the TV and The full works of The Two Ronnies on DVD.

May I recommend today's Google Doodle. Click on it and watch the 3D video. You can swivel round by grabbing the screen and swiping left or right, fast or as slow as you like. I watched it a few times to see the different cameos.

There was also another one about trig that I learned at KHVIII (1947-51) I think it was something about negative numbers. Anyway it was about 4 quadrants. So counting from top right: The first quadrant they were (A)ll positive (Sine, Cosine, Tan) All 2nd quadrant below first Only (S)ine " Sailors 3rd " below left " (T)angent " Take 4th " upper left " (C)osine " Care Our maths master was Bolam or Beetham, ex Navy and I think NZ.

Growing up in Coventry I had learnt: 'Richard of York gave battle in vain' But on moving to the chocolate city of York I found that the children learnt: 'Rowntrees of York give best in value' Now they've sold out to Nestle the rhyme wouldn't work.
