What Are Ordinal Numbers? We often don't realize it, but we use numbers in several ways. Say, when you are doing grocery, when packing for a road trip, and running a marathon, the books you read over the year. It is safe to say that we cannot eliminate the use of numbers from our everyday lives However, there are times when you don’t need to use a number but rather give a count to something. You want to define the position of something. You use a number to define the position of something in a group or order on the list. In such situations, we use ordinal numbers. for example, First or 1st, Second or 2nd, Third or 3rd, Fourth or 4th, Fifth or 5th. Ordinal numbers do not represent the quantity, but they are used to indicate the position and rank. Like the sixth floor, second grade, or twenty-fourth street. These worksheets and lessons help students learn how to use numbers to signify a position in a series.
