## Building Blocks/Prerequisites

### Sample Problems

 (1) Compare numbers by clicking on the correct symbol (<, =, <). 327,754,854 O 327,784,689 (327,754,854 < 327,784,689) (2) Order the following numbers from least to greatest: 780,000,000; 778,682,000; 708,536,919 (708,536,919; 778,682,000; 780,000,000) (3) Order the following numbers from greatest to least: 1.45; 1.09; 2.14 (2.14; 1.45; 1.09) (4) How would you change the underlined digit below to make the number sentence true? 465,298,315 > 465,738,715 ( 7) (5) Place numbers accurately on the number line below: 23,487,279; 27,384,729; 36,897, 251 ‹-•-----------------------------------•-------------------------------------•----› 20,000,000 30,000,000 40,000,000 Answer: ‹-•--------•-------------------•--------•---------------------•----------------•----› 20,000,000 23,487,278 27,384,729 30,000,000 36,897,251 40,000,000

### Learning Tips

 (1) To achieve accuracy, the child should line up the numbers being compared to make sure they are comparing the digits in the same place value. They can visually see which number is greater (9>8, therefore, 298,468,392 > 285,631,218) i.e.) 298,468,392 285,631,218 (2) Remind children to begin comparing numbers with the largest place value, and not to begin in the ones column. i.e.) 289,785 387,587 (3) Practice ordering numbers by using the place value chart as a tool to organize the numbers. (4) Know symbols accurately: > the “less than” sign points to the lower number 8<9 < the “greater than” sign want to eat the largest number (the mouth is open to eat the larger #) 9>8 (5) Math Vocabulary: Compare-decide which two numbers are greater or less than Greater than (>)- a symbol used to compare two numbers, showing that a number is higher out of the two Less than (<) – a symbol used to compare two numbers, showing that that a number is lower out of the two Number line- a line with equally spaced marks identified by numbers ‹--׀--------׀--------׀--------׀--------׀--------׀--------׀--------׀--------׀--------׀---› 0 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9
