Today my teacher was teaching me the different positions. I know that they are the same notes, but thought of a question just now: Is it the same notes played in a different order, or in the same order for each position? Because if it's the same order I don't see the point.

Scales are the same everywhere on the neck, as it relates to which notes you play. So if you learn a pentatonic scale, it will work everywhere on the neck...just be sure to compensate for the B string.
My Main Gear:
ESP Eclipse II
Jackson RRT-5
Dean Michael Schenker Signature Yin Yang
ESP LTD EC-1000 Deluxe
Gibson 2016 Les Paul Traditional T
Marshall JVM 410H/1960V Cabinet

Yeah I see what you're saying. This was different box positions though.

No, they're the same notes in the same order - the pattern of notes is constant across the entire guitar, therefore it follows that the pattern intervals for any scale will also remain constant.

There is no "point" to them, that's just where the notes are.

They make improvising using the whole neck much easier for those of us who haven't learn these sort of things as notes and intervals yet. The box positions are just the way the notes fall, they aren't the scales themselves. Food for thought: there are only 12 different notes on the entire guitar.
