Class: Primary 3
Term: 1st Term
Topic: whole numbers from 1 to 999
Subbtitle: Comparing numbers which are greater than (>) and those who are less than (<) numbers.
Learning Objectives: At the end of this this lesson, pupils should be able to:
Resources and materials:
Scheme of work
Instructional material: Number chart.
Building Background/connection to prior knowledge: pupils are familiar with the topic in their previous classes.
Let study these two numbers:
Comparing the hundreds, we see that 4 is greater than 3.
Comparing the tens, we see that 8 is greater than 1.
Comparing the units, we see that 6 is greater than 1.
Since 4 hundred is greater than 3 hundreds, then 481 is greater than 316.
481 > 316
Using symbols to compare numbers
The symbols used to compare which number is ‘greater than’ or ‘less than’ are
called inequality symbols.
Note: < less than Looks like a folded left elbow.
> greater than Looks like a folded right elbow.
Examples: 1.23 is less than 72. Using symbols, we can write this as 23 < 72
