Is BoB being dumbed down these days or am I just getting a lot cleverer?

I'm amazed how many of the questions I can answer (correctly!) these days.

Russell Davies just gave an answer which was a little different to what

I was taught, though. He "translated" the mathematical acronymn BODMAS

(or BIDMAS, which I hadn't heard before) as Brackets, Order (or

Indices), Division, Multiplication, Addition, Subtraction. I was taught

Brackets, Of, Divide, etc. I don't think we'd learned about indices

before we were taught BODMAS, but what does "Order" mean?
