Lesson 4: Greater Value

A coin's worth cannot be determined by looking at color or size.  

Example: A dime has more value than a nickle, even though the dime is smaller.


Symbols

Symbols can be used to represent value.

 

< represents less than

> represents greater than

= represents equal to

 

These symbols are placed in between two objects or numbers.

This number sentence says that a quarter is greater than a nickel.


 

**An easy way to remember how to use the correct symbol is to visualize the symbols < and > as alligator mouths, and the alligator always wants to eat the biggest object or number!


Use the symbols <, >, and = to complete the number sentence.
