"Compare These..." is a series of nine student puzzle books each comprised of one hundred sixty five inequality puzzles. They serve to promote number sense, logical and mathematical reasoning, and communication skills essential to every student’s mathematics education.
While similar to the entertaining and popular inequality puzzles known as "Futoshiki", "Compare These..." puzzles have the added advantage of not being restricted to comparing whole numbers 1, 2, 3, ..., n, in which n denotes a puzzle’s dimension. This allows for the use of such inequality puzzles at various grade levels in which different number representations are being learned and through which relevant number comparisons are made.
This document contains Questions and Answers about the puzzle books, sample puzzles taken from four volumes, and blackline masters introducing Grids, Rows & Columns, and Cells to students.
