Greater Than Less Than Worksheet

Using the Greater than (> ) and Less than (< ) signs

A good visual way to describe how to use the greater than and less than symbols is to imaging a crocodile's mouth.

The crocodile is a greedy creature and will always try to eat the biggest number, so his mouth always faces the largest number.

greater than symbol example

In the case above, 15 is larger than 12 so he turns to eat number 15, showing us the greater than sign.

less than symbol example

In the case above, the larger of the two numbers is 24, so he turns to eat that number, showing us the less than sign.

Comparing Numbers to 100
