Students could be given digits 0 - 9 and asked to choose three digits. They could then create all possible numbers with them. Once they have done this, the students could order their numbers from lowest to highest. A decimal point could also be introduced and the students could create more possible numbers. For example, with 1, 2 and 3 they could have 12.3, 32.1 and more.
