Comparing Expressions

Comparing Expressions

Children sometimes have a hard time comparing numbers, and knowing if one number is greater or less than another. Understanding place value and whether a digit is in the ones, tens, or hundreds place can be a big help in making number comparisons.
It's important to teach students to be flexible thinkers when it comes to multiplication. Instead of following a one-size-fits-all approach, students should stop and think about what each question is asking and how to solve the problem.
