Rearranging Numbers Worksheet

Worksheet Description

This worksheet provides a set of exercises where students are tasked with arranging given digits to form the smallest and largest numbers possible. The sheet is divided into two sections, one for creating the smallest numbers and the other for the largest, with several items listed under each. Students are given three or four incomplete numbers and must determine the correct placement of the missing digits to achieve the objective. Blank lines next to each set of digits are provided for students to record their answers.

The worksheet is designed to enhance students’ number sense, particularly their understanding of the value of digits depending on their placement within a number. It teaches students how to compare and order numbers by recognizing the significance of digit positioning. The exercise also fosters critical thinking as students must decide where to place a given digit to maximize or minimize the number’s value. Overall, this activity aims to solidify foundational math concepts that are vital for their mathematical progression.
