Maths

This week we would have been exploring place value in our Maths lessons.

In Year 2 we learn to:

  • Count in steps of 2, 3 and 5 from 0, and in tens from any number, forward and backward.
  • Recognise the place value of each digit in a two-digit number (tens and ones).
  • Compare and order numbers from 0 up to 100; use <, > and = signs.
  • Read and write numbers to at least 100 in numerals and words.
  • Use place value and number facts to solve problems.

 

Today can you explore comparing numbers?

Now you know what numbers are worth, let’s have a look at comparing numbers.

2 3     3 3

ll …    lll …

 

23 is made up of 2 tens and 3 ones. 33 is made up of 3 tens and 3 ones. Both numbers have 3 ones. I know that 33 is greater than 23 because 3 tens is worth more than 2 tens.

When we compare numbers we use these symbols:

>  <      =

more than       less than           equal to

 

  • 33>23   33 is more than 23
  • 23<33 23 is less than 33
  • 33=33 33 is equal to 33
  • 22=22 22 is equal to 33

 

Remember: the alligator’s greedy mouth always eats the larger number.

 

Write out two sets of number cards 0 – 9. Pick some cards to make two 2 digit numbers. Can you compare these numbers using the correct symbol > < =?

You could even design your own crocodiles to represent ‘more than’ and ‘less than’.
