Comparing Number 1-20 | Counting Number Worksheets - EasyShiksha

# Comparing Numbers 1-20 Worksheets

### Introduction:

The two sheets that have been provided basically cover the basic concept of math subject.

Both worksheets are basically about a concept in math called 'number comparison'. To Compare numbers means to 'understand' some basic differences between both numbers.

In this worksheet, the students are expected to compare between the numbers lesser than and greater than each other from among the list of given numbers in the sheet.

The exercise on this worksheet can also be used as a learning exercise and is mainly developed for young kids in primary school.

It is designed with the idea of helping the student, who happens to be a young child, to grasp the basic concept of numbers and develop a basic number sense.

### Importance of 'Number Sense'

Developing a number sense seems like a helpful skill to inculcate for young students. A student who has a definite number sense is someone who can easily understand quantities like more or less. Having a number sense, is the plain and simple ability to understand, relate and connect numbers. A number sense helps one to recognise the number and its relationship with other numbers.

Students can/ will develop this number sense if they regularly do number comparison activities like the one in the worksheet provided.

While attempting to answer the questions in the worksheet, the student will also get familiar with comparing numbers. He/she will also learn to identify and use the comparison symbols. In math the main symbols of comparison are '<' and '>' : and the student has to use them daily life

This really is a good foundation/start for the child to move ahead towards more complex mathematical calculations like addition, multiplication, Subtraction etc.

### Instructions To Solve The Worksheet

The first sheet from among the two sheets provided to the student, is for the questions alone. In this sheet, the children are asked to choose between 2 comparison symbols. One comparison symbol is the greater than '>'. The other comparison symbol is '<',

The students then have to choose one symbol from among the two that are given and enter it into the box, one symbol for each line of text.

They also have to put either of these comparison symbols into the empty box that is provided for filling the answer!

For example, in the first line, the students are asked to put the right comparison symbol in the box, placed between 11 and 13.

In this case the correct answer is '<' which (lesser than) means that 11 is a lesser number than 13 on the scale of math numerals

The second sheet which is provided to the students looks so similar to sheet 1 that it seems like an exact copy? (There is a specific reason for this, since it helps the student to learn better)

Even though both the sheets appear to be exact copies of each other, upon further observation the child will suddenly start to grasp the difference and sense what he is expected to do. will find out that both pages are not the same!

Since Sheet 2 is actually the answer key, it contains all the solutions to questions provided on sheet 1. The real challenge for the young student is to try and fill in all the empty boxes with the right answer without looking at the answer sheet unless he REALLY requires it.

### Conclusion

The questions provided in sheet 1, though relatively simple, will help the student who is new to math to understand the world of numbers better!

To put it In simpler words the children will observe at first that sheet 2 is almost similar to sheet 1. But When both the sheets are compared side by side, memorizing the answers provided in the answer key will be easier, and the student will retain more information.

This is also how the student will learn to correctly use and refer to an answer sheet. He will do this, not only to find the right answers but to memorize them as well and remember what they have learned!

The student will slowly start to grasp the concept of numbers and start to get a sense of which number is higher in value, and one is lower in value.

It is by now very clear that both worksheets are intended for teaching simple math concepts in an easy to learn fashion.

It includes colorful text as well, so as to attract the young student, help him focus and keep him engaged in his self teaching and learning process too.

If that wasn't enough, these basic math skills like 'comparison', and development of 'basic number sense' help so much in real life too.

An exercise the student can do at home to improve their number comparison skills is- counting objects about the house with them and allowing the child within envelope number sense.
