# Simple Decimal Comparisons

## Worksheet Description

It features sixteen pairs of decimal numbers, and the task for students is to compare each pair using the appropriate symbol for less than (<), greater than (>), or equal to (=). The decimals are presented in a straightforward format, with varying degrees of difficulty in terms of the number of decimal places, which requires students to pay close attention to the value of each digit in its respective place value.

The worksheet’s main educational goal is to enhance students’ understanding of decimal place values and their ability to compare them accurately. It is designed to help students practice the skill of discerning differences in decimal numbers, reinforcing the concept that a decimal’s value is dependent on the position of its digits. By comparing decimals of different lengths and place values, students can develop a stronger number sense and better prepare for more complex mathematical concepts that involve decimals. The worksheet also serves to build the students’ confidence in handling numbers in a decimal format.
