This lesson focuses on developing students' skills in comparing numbers using visual models, place value method, ordering numbers in ascending and descending order, and creating the smallest/greatest number with given digits.
Task 1 introduces students to comparing numbers using visual models. By understanding that ones < tens < hundreds, students can visually see the relationship between different digits and develop a foundation for further comparison tasks.
The optional sections provide additional practice problems and challenges for students who want to further enhance their skills in comparing and ordering numbers. These sections offer opportunities for extension and differentiation based on individual student needs.
Objective: Deepen students' understanding of number sense by using 10-frames, enabling them to recognize patterns, compare quantities, and represent numbers efficiently.
