Comparing and Ordering Numbers

This series of interactive excel sheets aimed at Year Four students look at comparing and ordering numbers. Answers can be checked each time and new questions generated at the click of a button.

In the third sheet students have to select numbers that lie between two other numbers from a list of nine values.

In the fourth sheet students have to read the correct temperature from two thermometers. There are three possible options to choose from, including negative values.

In the fifth sheet three values have to be placed in order from smallest to largest. Two- to four-digit numbers can be selected.
