# Tens to Thousandths

## Worksheet Description

This worksheet is designed for the educational purpose of teaching students how to compare decimal numbers. It features sixteen pairs of decimals, and the task is to use the symbols < (less than), > (greater than), or = (equal to) to compare the values. The decimals provided range from simple two-decimal places to more complex numbers with multiple decimal places, challenging the students to consider place value in their comparisons. The clear and simple layout is meant to focus the student’s attention on the concept of decimal value without distraction.

The worksheet aims to strengthen students’ understanding of decimal place values and their ability to compare different decimal numbers. By evaluating and filling in the appropriate comparison symbols, students learn to discern slight differences in decimal values, which is a critical skill in both math and real-life applications. This practice helps students build confidence in working with decimals and lays the groundwork for future arithmetic involving decimal numbers. Furthermore, the variety of decimal comparisons is designed to progressively develop the student’s skills, starting from easier to more challenging numbers.

On this decimal value comparison worksheet, you will compare values that have tens place value through the thousandth place.  Use the symbols that are listed at the top of the worksheet to compare these values.
