This 16-slide PowerPoint presentation uses a three-step process to compare different numbers. Writing a statement of inequality using the numbers an correct inequality symbol is the 1st step. Explaining in words what the statement of inequality means is the 2nd step. The 3rd step is to interpret the relative position of each number on a number line (both horizontal & vertical number lines are used). Positive & negative numbers are both used in examples. Those viewing this presentation have already been introduced to plotting on number lines containing positive & negative rational numbers. The content is based on Common Core standard CCSS.Math.Content.6.NS.C.7a & 7b under the domain of The Number System. This presentation is estimated to use about 20 minutes of class time, but more or less time may be spent depending on how much student involvement you plan to use. It can also be used as a tool for individuals needing remediation or who may have missed the lesson. This presentation also makes for a good review reference to place on a teacher webpage.
