E.g. 1 Learners identify numbers which are 1,000 and 10,000 more or less than a given

five-digit or six-digit number. E.g. 2400 is 1,000 less than 3400. Learners use

words such as: “equal to” “greater than” “less than” and later use symbols such as

“<”, “=”, “>” to compare numbers up to 100,000 taking into consideration the

place value of each digit in the given number. E.g. 1200 = 1200; 27345 >

26355,

E.g. 2 Learners work together in their groups to order a given set of numbers in

ascending or descending order verbally and in writing. E.g. 1020, 1025,

2673, 2873,

E.g. 3 Give two numbers between 10,000 and 100,000 to each group and encourage

learners to say as many things as possible about the two numbers. For instance, 21345 and

21534; 21345 is less than (smaller than) than 21534 or 21534 is bigger than (greater than)

21345, or 21345 is almost 200 less than 21534 etc.
