Question about English (US)

In my native language, Portuguese, we have different names for the term mathematical operation and for each one of them: addition, subtraction, multiplication and division.

When you first learn them, as a kid, at school, we don't use those complex names.

Operação Matemática - Conta
Adição - Conta de mais
Subtração - Conta de menos
Multiplicação - Conta de vezes
Divisão - Conta de dividir

Do you Americans do something similar? If so, what do you call them? (The childish way) Mathematical operation, addition, subtraction, multiplication and division. If there is more of them (like square root etc), I would appreciate if you write them too.
