Laminate and use the large 7 inch greater than / less than symbol as a manipulative on your whiteboard (with magnets) or document camera to help your students learn to compare numbers and read equations properly. Students can utilize the smaller 3 inch symbols when comparing numbers at their desk. Cut and fold the cards in half so that the equal sign is on one side and the greater than/ less than symbol is on the back. Then laminate the cards. Students can utilize these cards with or without words depending on their skill level. They work great when students are playing comparing games like the old card game of War. Happy comparing!
