Today we will be comparing number sentences. We have used the more (greater) than and less than symbols to help us compare numbers but have not yet used them to compare number sentences. Some children find it easier to use the symbols correctly if they have them drawn and labeled in front of them whilst they work.
< less than
> more (greater) than
It is also important that they use the vocabulary more than, greater than or less than. Use it for them so that they get used to hearing it, then expect them to have a go at using it themselves.
Watch the tutorial below before having a go at the sheets.
