The 'order of operations' is what we've been revisiting in our arithmetic time this week.
This is an agreed set of rules that mathematicians have agreed to use when more than one operation is involved. (Remember BIDMAS still applies when brackets aren't used too!)
B - Brackets
I - Indices
MD - Multiplication and Division
SA - Subtraction and Addition
Also try to remember that the final two are of even importance - so we work from left to right!
