Big Ideas: Numbers can be compared using symbols. Every digit in a number has a specific value. In this lesson, students will be ordering numbers from greatest to least and from least to greatest and compare using symbols (,=). Many of the numbers chosen have a zero in one of the places or have similar digits in different places so students must consider the value instead of just the digit. Vocabulary: compare, equal, greater than, less than, symbol, digit, value Special Materials: Dice (1 per person or per partner pair) Place Value Chart (hundreds, tens, and ones)
