## Ordering Numbers.

When ordering numbers, it is a good idea to
compare the digits in their place values, especially when the numbers look very similar. We compare the largest place value first, then slowly move down until we find a difference.

There are also some mathematical signs we can use to show the information we have found out

> This means ‘more than’ so for example, 10 > 5

Think of the signs as the snapping jaws of crocodiles.

The jaws of the crocodile should always be facing the bigger number. Remember, crocodiles are greedy so that’s the number they’ll eat.

We can also use ordering to compare decimals in the same way and we can also use ordering to list numbers from largest to smallest or smallest to largest.
