In this activity, we will be writing the positions of numbers in a list.
Look at this sequence of numbers.
2 4 6 8 10 12 14
We can number them using 1, 2, 3, 4 etc.
But it is better to use the words:
First, second, third, fourth, fifth, sixth, seventh
or the symbols
1st, 2nd, 3rd, 4th, 5th, 6th, 7th
2 is the 1st number in the sequence.
6 is the 3rd number in the sequence.
14 is the 7th number in the sequence.
Does that make sense?
Let's have a go at some questions now.
