### Easy way to explain math answers - math signs: less than (<), greater than (>), equal to (=)

In order for kids to develop a positive attitude towards math, they need to build a swift and ** easy way to explain math answers**. However this skill can best be obtained with an understanding of

- Sign > to mean greater than.

[**If left is less** “**<**”, **then right is more** “**>**”]

To further enhance an understanding of the above math signs, kids will be drilled to tackle exercises that require them to __compare numbers up to 10 using words__, __compare numbers up to 100 using signs__. Before they begin, the review of __comparing objects: more or less__ activity will sharpen their brains to a great understanding of comparing numbers.

To identify which number is more or less than the other when __compare numbers up to 100 using signs__, kids should bear in mind that;

- The number with 3 digits like 100 is greater than the number with 1 or 2 digits. Also,
- If two numbers have the same digits, we compare them based on their extreme left digit numbers. The number with the greater extreme left digit is greater
