Worksheet Overview

In this worksheet, we will learn how to put integers in ascending order, placing the smallest number first.


Don't be put off by the word integer - it simply means a whole number, not a fraction or a decimal.


For example: 

Arrange the following integers in ascending order, putting the smallest number first.


48,  56, 14, -35, -2



-35, -2, 14, 48, 56


The smallest negative number is -35, then -2.  The smallest positive number is 14.


Let's try another one:

Arrange the following integers in ascending order:


12, 0, -3, -15, 5



-15, -3, 0, 5, 12


Let's move on to some questions now.
