Symbols and Least to Greatest

Worksheet Description

This worksheet is focused on the skill of comparing decimal numbers. Students are presented with pairs of decimals and are instructed to use the correct comparison symbol (less than, greater than, or equal to) between them. The worksheet is divided into two parts; the first part involves direct comparison of individual pairs of decimals, while the second part challenges students to order a set of decimals from least to greatest, further reinforcing the concept of decimal value.

The objective of this worksheet is to teach students how to accurately compare decimal numbers by understanding place value and numerical order. It helps students recognize that decimals are not just whole numbers and that each decimal place has a specific value. Ordering decimals from least to greatest strengthens their number sense and prepares them for more complex mathematical operations involving decimals. Moreover, consistent practice with such worksheets aims to build fluency and confidence in dealing with decimal numbers.

This is a two-part worksheet. You will first write symbols to make a straight comparison between two decimal values. The second part has you order three sets of decimals from least to greatest.
