EngageNY 60 min(s)

In this lesson, students begin to compare decimal fractions to the thousandths by using like units. They compare whole numbers using place value reasoning, incorporating the use of inequality symbols. Then they compare decimals to the thousandths. For example, students compare 0.012 and 0.002. Finally, students compare decimal fractions and order a set of decimals written in standard form from least to greatest.
