Except nobody (after elementary school or junior high in some cases) uses them like that. Did you see the fraction I posted (although is a little blurry, damn google image betrayed me)? That's how people present division in a way that is clear to everyone.

 really, why would your country teach math different then everywhere else, i thought that math was the universal language everyone spoke the same.
That's fallacious to think. Mathematic is indeed a universal language, since it uses the same symbols in the same processes. But like any language, some stuff varies from region to region. Some regions give priority to division, others to multiplications, some to addition, others to subtraction. The difference in the final result should be nonexistent if the math problem is presented in an adequate form, which isn't the case here. Which reminds me of another thing this thing lacks: more brackets.
