This is the fifth lesson in my Place Value unit. It is designed to take the class through the vocabulary and examples of comparing numbers and then how to order them. After the introductory slides, the lesson then moves to interactive activities to check for the students understanding of the concept. The embedded video shows how to make the greater than or less than sign without being confused by the age old crocodile story. There is also a link that will take you to a Math Dictionary Webpage with many great visuals and explicit descriptions of the vocabulary terms. All of the words, pictures, and numbers are designed to be manipulated for individual students to come up to the board to display their answers and explain their reasoning.
