Sample Classroom Procedure / Teacher Instruction

  1. Begin by counting together as a group from one to ten. Talk to students about the differences between numbers, some numbers are large and some are small. Introduce the concept of comparing large numbers and that it can be more difficult than comparing smaller numbers, but tell students that they will learn a way to make comparing large numbers easy.
  2. While reading the content pages, review place value and explain how using place value helps mathematicians compare very large numbers.
  3. Introduce the notes on comparing large whole numbers. Have students practice using the place value chart to compare numbers.
  4. Distribute Activity page to students. Explain the rules and how the activity will work. Model an example so students know how to write their answers.
  5. Distribute Practice page. Check and review the students’ responses. Have students check their work with a partner.
  6. Distribute the Homework page.
  7. In closing, ask students if they think we can compare any number, no matter how large.
  8. Allow for responses and any questions
