Math With Bad Drawings had an amusing essay concerning differences in mathematical nomenclature between American English and British English. I thought that it would be appropriate to share this around the Fourth of July.

From the essay and the comments to the essay:

- Math vs. maths
- Zee vs. zed
- vs.
- Trapezoid vs. trapezium
- Scientific notation vs. standard form
- Exponents vs. indices
- Revise and review vs. review and revise
- Imperial units vs. metric units
- Pythagorean theorem vs. Pythagoras
- Slope vs. gradient
- Root vs. surd
- PEMDAS vs. BIMDAS
- Billion vs. trillion (a generation ago)
- GCD (greatest common divisor) vs. HCF (highest common factor)
