Worksheet Overview

In this activity, we will find the positions of given numbers on a number track.

Example

Look at this number track.

 A B C D 38 39 40 41 E F G H

Choose the correct letters for the positions of the numbers 36 and 44.

To work this out, we need to use the numbers we've got and continue either counting forwards or backwards.

To find 36, we know that this number comes before 38, so we need to count back.

Before 38 is 37, so D will be 37.

Before 37 is 36, so C will be 36.

To find 44, we know that this number comes after 41, so we need to continue counting on from 41.

E will be 42.

F will be 43.

G will be 44.

 34 35 36 37 38 39 40 41 42 43 44 45

36 = C
44 = G

Let's try some questions now.
