Ordering Negative Numbers
from -10 to 10

Welcome to our Ordering Negative Numbers page.

Here is our selection of worksheets designed to help your child learn to order a range of positive and negative numbers from -10 to 10.

Our worksheets include ordering lists of numbers and positioning numbers on a negative number line.

What are Negative Numbers?

Negative numbers are numbers with a value of less than zero.

They can be fractions, decimals, rational and irrational numbers.

-13, -½ , -√2, -6.4 and -123 are all negative numbers.

We have a page dedicated to learning about negative numbers below.

How To Order 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.

Using a number line can really help children and support their understanding at this stage.
