Compare these numbers. Two, four. Complete the statement; two is what
four. Is it less than, equal to, or
greater than?

We’re shown two numbers, the
numbers two and four. We have to compare them. And then, we have to complete the
statement, two is what four. We could use the less than
symbol. Our statement would say, two is
less than four. The answer could be two is equal to
four. Or, we could use the greater than
symbol. Two is greater than four.

We can use the counters to help
us. We can see that two counters are
less than four counters. So, the missing symbol is less
than. Two is less than four. The correct symbol is less than
because two is less than four.
