Fill in the missing numbers with this number line worksheet.
Complete the Number Line Worksheet
Students will use their problem-solving skills to determine the missing numbers on the number lines.
The number lines featured in this resource do not have any consecutive numbers filled in. Students will need to determine how many gaps there are and the difference between the two numbers on either side of the gaps.
Once they have determined the increments, they will then be able to complete each number line.
There are two versions of the resource, one with the missing numbers in a table at the bottom of the page and one with an extra number line in its place.
Increments include counting by ones, twos, threes, fives, and tens.
An answer key is included with your download to make grading marking fast and easy!
