Compare these sets of
cubes. Pick the missing symbol, equal
to, greater than, or less than.
First, we need to compare the
sets of cubes. Let’s count the cubes in the
first tower. One, two, three, four,
five. There are five cubes in the
first tower. And the blue tower has one,
two, three cubes. Which tower has the greatest
number of cubes? The green one. It has five cubes. And the blue tower has
three. Five is greater than three. The greatest part of the symbol
points to the greatest number, or the greatest amount of objects. And the smallest end of the
symbol points to the least number of objects, or the smallest number. The missing symbol is greater
than. Five is greater than three.
