Comparing 65 and 47

This video illustrates the use of manipulatives to help students practice comparing quantities that are grouped as tens and ones. When numbers are represented with manipulatives organized as tens and ones, students develop a concrete understanding for using place value to comparing quantities. Students also benefit from multiple opportunities to talk about mathematics and use appropriate mathematics vocabulary such as “greater than” and “less than.”
