## Greater Than, Less Than, Equal To

SOL 1.10 The student will compare, using the concepts of more, less, and equivalent,

a) the volumes of two given containers; and

b) the weight/mass of two objects, using a balance scale.

a) the volumes of two given containers; and

b) the weight/mass of two objects, using a balance scale.

**Description:**Students will compare numbers and classify as less than, greater than or equal to. Students will fill out game page as the game goes on. Students will also review concepts on YouTube video.

**Materials:**- 1 Die
- 3 copies per person of the "Greater Than, Less Than, Equal To" game page
- Pencil.
- Internet access to You Tube

**Student Directions**- Watch You Tube Video to refresh comparing numbers: Alligator Bait: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=f2Yawk3ojw8
- Roll die.
- Write down the number you got in the first column on the left hand side.
- Roll the die again and write the number in the last column on the right hand side
- Write the < or > or = sign in the middle column, to signify less than, greater than, or equal to.
- Continue until the page is finished.
- Do this activity two more times on the remaining pages, time permitting. Each time a player writes
**greater than**for a set, they get**1 point**. The player with the most points at the end of 3 pages wins.

**Differentiation**:

Instead of rolling one die at a time, try two dice and add up the sums for each number in the equation. For example, I roll and get a 2 and a 3. I write down on my record sheet 2+3=5. I then put the sum, which is 5, in the left hand column. Then I roll again and add the two numbers together for the sum for the right column. Then I compare the two sums and write the symbols for less than, greater than, or equal to. Turn in both the game sheet and the record sheet with your math problems.

**Assessment**: Formative-Teacher stops by and checks on students and asks questions to check for understanding.

Summative- Students turn in record sheet that shows the work done in the game and if they did they differentiation, they would also include the sheet of paper when they show their addition.
