Task# Ordering Numbers

Illustrative MathematicsVaries

The purpose of this task is to give students an opportunity to compare numbers less than 100 to benchmark numbers. Even though a number line is not explicitly given in the task, it is useful for students to list the numbers in the order they would appear on the number line; this allows them to focus on the relative ordering without worrying about the exact placement on the number line. Students should also have a chance to do similar tasks with a number line.
