Ordering Numbers

"Waiter, I would like a 7 and a 3, please..."
NO, not THAT type of ordering. I mean putting them in order ...
To put numbers in order, place them from lowest (first) to highest (last). This is called "Ascending Order" (think of ascending a mountain)

Example: Place 17, 5, 9 and 8 in ascending order.
  • Answer: 5, 8, 9, 17

Sometimes you want the numbers to go the other way, from highest down to lowest, this is called "Descending Order" (think of a "steep descent")

Example: Place 17, 5, 9 and 8 in descending order.
  • Answer: 17, 9, 8, 5

Practice by neatening up your friends. Measure their heights, then place them in ascending order of height. Try it again, but use their weights.
