Monday: One more and one less

Today we are going to be recapping how to find 'one more' and 'one less.' First, we are going to look at finding 'one more.' Can you remember how we find 'one more' than a given number? Does the number get bigger or smaller when we are finding 'one more?' Could you use a number line or a 100 square to help you? Tell your grown up using the sentence stems below... 

 

"To find 'one more' you need to..." 

"When you find 'one more' the number gets..." 

"To find 'one more' on a number line you would need to..." 

 

Well done! To find 'one more' than a number you would need to make 1 jump forwards on your number line/100 square - the number will ALWAYS get bigger when you are finding 'one more.' Finding 'one more' is just like adding one more to your number! 

 

Now let's think about finding 'one less.' How do we do that? What would happen to the number, would it get bigger or smaller? Which way would we need to jump on the number line/100 square? Use the sentence stems to support your answers... 

 

"To find 'one less' you need to..." 

"When you find 'one less' the number gets..." 

"To find 'one less' on a number line you would need to..." 

 

Well done! To find 'one less' than a number you would need to take 1 jump backwards on your number line/100 square - the number will ALWAYS get smaller when you are finding 'one less.' Finding 'one less' is just like subtracting/taking away one!

Challenge - Can you use these sentence stems to explain what is 'one more' and 'one less' than each of the numbers above. 

 

"One more than ________ is ________." 

"One less than _________ is _________." 

"I know that ___________ is one more than _________ because _________." 

"I know that ___________ is one less than __________ because___________."

Tuesday: Ordering Numbers 

Today we are going to use our understanding of numbers and place value to help us to put various numbers in order from smallest/fewest to largest/greatest. You can use your number line/100 square (^^ above) to help you to do this accurately, as well as using your understanding of 'more than' and 'less than.' 

 

To do the activity today it might help you to look at the three numbers you have been given and then begin to make your way across the number line, with these numbers in mind, starting from zero (0). The first number (out of your three numbers) that you come across will be the smallest number and the last number that you come across will be the largest. 

Order these numbers from smallest to greatest

Wednesday: Comparing Numbers

Today we are going to be comparing numbers using some vocabulary that you should all be familiar with. The words that we are going to use today are: 

  1. Less than - the number is smaller than the number/s it is being compared to. 
  2. Greater/more than - the number is larger than the number/s it is being compared to. 
  3. Equal to - the number is the same as the number/s it is being compared to. 

These words help us to compare numbers to one another - the diagram below might help to make this clearer...

Have a go at applying your understanding of greater than/less than/equal to by using the 'Is more than/Is less than' game that is linked below. How many questions can you get right before the timer runs out? Can you challenge yourself to beat your record? 

Challenge - Can you remember how to compare numbers using these different symbols

<, >, =. 

Have a go at using these symbols to compare the numbers below: 

  • 2 and 8 
  • 10 and 24
  • 19 and 4 
  • 20 and 20
  • 100 and 45 

Hint - the crocodile is ALWAYS hungry so he ALWAYS eats the biggest number! Watch the video below to remind yourself how to compare numbers using these symbols...
