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 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.
