Students could be given digits 0 - 9 and asked to choose three of these. 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.
