    New Learning Goal: 1st Grade: Compare two two-digit numbers based on meanings of the tens and ones digits, recording the results of
    comparisons with the symbols >, =, and <.

    I will be teaching K-2 and found this exercise to be very interesting and a great chance to dive into the standards that I need to gain familiarity with having taught upper elementary in the past. Student expectations of comparing numbers grows with their understanding of place value. Students ready to stretch could be given numbers beyond the grade level standards or perhaps be given fraction comparisons in grades 3 and 4 to stretch.

    Prior Learning Goal: pre-K :

    C. Compare numbers.
    4. Count many kinds of concrete objects and actions up to ten, using one-to-one correspondence, and
    accurately count as many as seven things in a scattered configuration. Recognize the “one more,” “one
    less” patterns.
    5. Use comparative language, such as more/less than, equal to, to compare and describe collections of

    Prior Learning Goal: K:

    Identify whether the number of objects in one group is greater than, less than, or equal to the number
    of objects in another group for groups with up to 10 objects, e.g., by using matching and counting
    7. Compare two numbers between 1 and 10 presented as written numerals.

    Future Learning Goal: 2nd Grade:

    Compare two three-digit numbers based on meanings of the hundreds, tens, and ones digits, using >, =,
    and < symbols to record the results of comparisons

    Future Learning Goal: 4th Grade:

    Read and write multi-digit whole numbers using base-ten numerals, number names, and expanded
    form. Compare two multi-digit numbers based on meanings of the digits in each place, using >, =, and <
    symbols to record the results of comparisons. (up to 1 million)
