# The Number Line - Worksheet

## Maths Resource Description

The Number Line Worksheet is a maths resource designed to help students understand and practice comparing and sequencing numbers. In the first section of the worksheet, students are presented with pairs of numbers and instructed to circle the greater number in each pair. This activity includes simple comparisons such as choosing between 6 and 10 or between 3 and 5, as well as deciding which is smaller between 8 and 2 or 5 and 9, among others. These exercises serve to reinforce the concept of number magnitude and help students visualise where numbers sit in relation to each other on a number line.

The second worksheet shifts focus to understanding one more and one less than a given number. Students are asked to identify which number is one more than another, such as determining the number that is one more than 4 or one more than 6. Similarly, they need to find out which number is one less, for instance, one less than 2 or one less than 9. This part of the worksheet encourages students to practice simple addition and subtraction within the context of a number line. The third worksheet provides an interactive challenge where students must draw lines to match missing numbers with their correct positions on a number line, enhancing their ability to sequence numbers accurately. Answers are provided for this activity, allowing for self-assessment or teacher-led review.
