This week, we are continuing with our topic of money. We will be looking at making amounts, comparing, finding the total/difference and finding change. 


Can you compare amounts of money? 


What is the same/different?


Remember the symbols we use to compare amounts 


<           When one value is smaller than another, we can use a less than sign.

>           When one value is bigger than another, we can use a greater than sign.

=           When two values are equal, we use the equals sign.
