Ordering Negative Numbers


When you order negative numbers, the larger the number after the negative sign, the smaller the number actually is.

This means that -7 is smaller than -5, and -20 is smaller than -9.

This can be quite confusing to children who are used to numbers getting larger as they increase in size.

Here you will find a range of free printable math worksheets, which will help your child learn to order negative numbers.

The sheets are graded in order of difficulty with the easier ones coming first.

Using these sheets will help your child to:

  • learn to order numbers from -10 to 10;
  • learn to position negative numbers on a number line.
