acronyms and mnemonics

I am looking to make a small compilations of acronyms (like FOIL) and
other mnemonic tools that are being used by math-teachers in
English-speaking countries. I am particularly interested in non-US
mnemonics.

I should also state in advance that this curiosity arises from a
research project--personally, I do not support the use of mnemonic
tools in the classroom, except in the direst of circumstances. I will
post a summary of the results next week, once I've had a reasonable
collection of comments.

I would prefer off-list responses if possible, but I would pick up
any responses from lists as well. In particular, if you are
responding to the message on one list, please avoid cross-posting it
to other lists unless you are already a member.

polemical lists.
