This standards-based unit includes practice comparing and ordering numbers based on place value relationships. Are your students ready for the challenges of the 21st century? Problem-solving and critical thinking skills are at the very heart of getting our kids ready to navigate the world of today.
This is a free preview of the complete unit that you may find here.
Teachers need to understand the ways in which students acquire the ability to understand ordering and comparing numbers and its relationship to place value. Developing reasoning with place value is critical to using higher-level math.
Mega Math Practice 1.NBT.3 gives your students a lot of practice understanding the magnitude of numbers and the concepts of greater than and less than. Young mathematicians not only need to learn how to understand numbers based on place value but also how numbers relate and compare to each other. Students should not just be able to compare numbers, but to reason with those comparisons. This is how we encourage higher-order thinking in our young students.
Mega Math Practice can be used as independent practice for skills already taught, homework or for a class starter. These pages are NOT meant to be used until students need practice with skills that they have already been taught. The use of manipulatives would also be helpful when using these practice pages.
Students need many opportunities to work with different situations in comparing and ordering numbers. These pages progress from concrete to representational to abstract thinking about numbers.
This unit is aligned with the First Grade Common Core Math Standard 1.NBT.3
Understanding Place Value:
Compare two two-digit numbers based on meanings of the tens and ones digits, recording the results of comparisons with the symbols >, =, and <.
This unit includes practice with comparing and ordering numbers with the use of objects, ten frames, base ten blocks, place value charts and numbers. I use these pages during our “written math practice” rotation during math workshop/guided math time. These pages can also be used for early finishers or homework during the time that you work with individuals and small groups. There will be more MEGA MATH PRACTICE units to come aligned with the Common Core State Standards.
I have used ‘guided math’ in my classroom for over ten years. I begin my teaching block teaching/spiraling math concepts as a whole group, but most of my math block is devoted to guided practice in small groups followed by independent or small group practice, centers and intervention. I begin my math time every day with a page from my “Number of the Day” series.
I hope that you and your kids enjoy this fun resource. Check out my store for lots of fun math units including my popular Number of the Day units for grades K-Second.
