Greater Than What?

This week in math we have been comparing numbers. Our class learned that to compare, we have to look at two things. Today we used our document camera to compare piles of beans. Students were able to see all the beans on the active board, and then make a statement.

Abby figured out that when we counted the larger group in groups of 10, it made more groups and change what we compared. Way to think Abby!

Ask your student about what greater than and less than mean. See if they can tell you the difference between a guess and an educated guess.
