Comparing Numbers to 100
Yesterday you were counting to 100 and partitioning numbers. Today we are going to be comparing them.
To compare numbers we need to use the language 'less than', 'greater than', 'more than', 'equal to', 'the same as'.
We also need to use the symbols:
< > =
Can you remember which is which?
Clue: The crocodile eats the larger number.
When we compare two numbers we need to approach it logically. If we had the numbers 43 and 38, we would begin by comparing the 'tens' numbers. In this case, 4 tens is more so that number must be larger. If the number of tens is the same, we move to the ones columns to see which is larger.
38 < 43 Thirty-eight is less than forty-three
43 > 38 Forty-three is more/greater than thirty-eight.
This may seem obvious, but children need to be clear that we use place value to compare numbers and that the column a digit is in determines its value.
Insert the correct symbols (<>=) between these numbers
