# Last Integer

## Worksheet Description

This worksheet features a collection of boxes, each centered around a specific number with three additional numbers surrounding it. The task for the students is to identify and circle the number that is one less than the central number in each box. The numbers around the central number are mixed, requiring students to determine which one is sequentially just before the central number. This requires recognition of number order and the ability to subtract one to find the correct answer.

The worksheet’s purpose is to teach students about the concept of ‘one less’ in numerical sequences. It reinforces the understanding of numbers that come immediately before a given number, helping to build a foundation for subtraction. Through this exercise, students are encouraged to sharpen their skills in number recognition and sequence identification. It is an exercise that boosts mathematical reasoning and lays groundwork for more advanced arithmetic concepts.
