# Greatest number to 100

### Link to the Number Framework:

Number Sequence, Stage 4

### What you need:

• Playing cards. (Ace = 1, Jack = 0)

### What to do:

• The cards are placed faced down in a pile between the players.
• Each player selects two cards and arranges them to make the largest two digit number.

For example 5 and 2 can be arranged as 52 or 25.

• The cards are placed at the bottom of the pile.
• The player with the largest number wins a point. The winner is the first player to win 5 points.

### What to expect your child to do:

• To read the two digit numbers and recognise the biggest number.

### Variation:

• The aim can be to make the smallest two digit number.
• Which number is closest to 50?

### He Kupu Māori:

 biggest nui rawa smallest iti rawa pack of cards pūkei kāri

### Kia Mataara:

Be careful with the correct way of saying numbers with two and three decimal places. 0.25 is not said as ‘kore ita rua tekau mā rima (zero point twenty five)’ because saying rua tekau (twenty) is incorrect, misleading and confusing. The correct way of saying it is to say each individual digit: ‘kore ira rua rima (zero point two five).
