# Order of operations term

What is the single-word term for "order of operations" in English, if there is one of course? I am debating this with colleague and we don't know if such term exists in English math literature.

Thank you!

Can you use that phrase in a sentence? It might be easier then to see if there's a one-word equivalent. –  Gerry Myerson Apr 3 '12 at 12:48
Just a guess: Do you mean "precendence"? –  Johannes Kloos Apr 3 '12 at 12:50
