Compare And Order Non-rational numbers Wilma L. Collins Cobb 6th Grade Campus GPISD TEKS Objective 6.1A вЂў (1) Number, operation, and quantitative reasoning. The student represents and uses rational numbers in a variety of equivalent forms. The student is expected to: вЂў (A) compare and order non-negative rational numbers; Purpose вЂў The purpose of the lesson is to determine students understanding of number concepts вЂў Students will successfully read, compare, and order whole numbers and decimals. Paper Plate Presentation Materials вЂў 2 sets of Paper Plate Presentation plates вЂў Transparencies or list of Paper Plate Presentation numbers Directions 1. two teams with a set of plates. 2. Each team member should have a plate. 3. This is a silent game, if a student talks during play, a point will be deducted from the teamвЂ™s score. 4. Show the first problem. Directions Continue 5. Once the problem is uncovered, the team members with the appropriate plates should arrange themselves at the front of the class to represent the number/problem displayed from the transparency. 6. The students have 30 seconds to form the number/problem at the front of the class. After 30 seconds, each team is given a point for a correct answer. 7. An additional point is given to the first team to вЂњpresentвЂќ the correct answer. 8. Play continues until all of the numbers/problems have been displayed. 9. The winning team is the one with the most points at the end of the game. Presentation Numbers 1. five thousand, two and one tenth 2. Seven hundred twenty-three and eight hundredths 3. Eighty and four thousandths 4. Nine thousandths 5. One and fifty-three hundredths 6. Two hundred one thousand, thirty-six Presentation numbers continue 7. Fifteen and two tenths. 8. One hundred twenty thousand, three hundred seven and four tenths. 9. Four hundred twenty-five thousand, three hundred seventeen and eight thousandths. 10.one hundred forty-six thousand, three hundred ninety-seven Guided PracticeвЂ¦вЂ¦вЂ¦.. Place the following numbers in order from greatest to least. 0.75, 0.615, 0.58, 0.195 1. Line-up numbers and add zero(s) 0.750 0.615 0.580 0.195 2. Look at number in the tenths place, all the numbers are different, so arrange that number in order from greatest to least. .615 ,.195, .580, .750, than reorder all .750 .615 .580 .195 How do you compare and order nonnegative rational numbers?

Do the practice exercise of your choice, complete exercise according to web directions. http://www.aaamath.com Conclusion вЂў Understanding place value can help you compare and order numbers. вЂў Start at the far left place value of the numbers, adding zero(s) as place holders when the numbers donвЂ™t have the same number of place values. вЂў Compare the digit of each place value where the digits are different. вЂў The way those digits compare is the way the whole numbers compare. вЂў Use > (greater than), < (less than), or = (equal to) when comparing numbers.
