Pick the symbol to compare these
sets of ten frames. Is it less than, greater than, or
equal to?

We’re shown two different
models. We have to work out which number
each model represents. And then we need to compare the
numbers. How many tens does the first model
have? Both of these ten frames are
full. They both contain 10 counters. So there are two tens in our first
number. And how many ones can you see left
over? There are two. Two tens and two ones gives us the
number 22.

Now, let’s look at our second
number. There are three ten frames, and
they are all full of counters. And there are no ones left
over. Our second number is 30. Three tens are 30. 22 is less than 30. The number 22 has two tens, and the
number 30 has three. And we know that two is less than
three. The correct symbol to compare these
two numbers is “less than” because 22 is less than 30.
