# Ordering and Position Worksheets

What Do the Positions (First, Middle, and Last) Mean? Isn't math exceedingly difficult? Well, there are a few definitions and rules in math that make the subject very interesting and not at all boring. So, do you know what positions are? Let us take a look, shall we? Position in math refers to the space that is occupied by an object with respect to another object, meaning wherever something is placed, that will be its position. There are three types of positions in math: First, Middle, Last... | First - A value that is placed ahead or at the top of all other values is known as the first position. Middle - Values that are placed between two other positions are known as middle positions. Last - A value that is placed at the bottom or at the end of all other values is known as the last value.
