Smallest and Greatest

Smallest and Greatest Worksheet

Worksheet Description

This worksheet provides a series of three-digit numbers for students to work with. The students are tasked with rearranging the digits of each number to form the smallest and largest possible numbers. A table with two columns labeled “Smallest number” and “Greatest number” is provided for students to record their answers. The exercise is a practical application of understanding numerical order and place value.

The worksheet is designed to teach students about the relative value of digits depending on their placement within a number. It reinforces the concept that the position of a digit affects the overall value of the number it’s in. By rearranging the digits to form the smallest and largest numbers, students learn how to compare and order numbers effectively. This skill is vital for developing a strong sense of number magnitude, which is foundational in mathematics.
