Lesson 3.3 Ordering Decimals
Comparing Metric Lengths Look at your ruler to see if 10.6 < 11 or 11>10.6

Lesson 3.3 Ordering Decimals
Ordering Numbers on a Number Line Order the numbers x, y, and z from greatest to least. 3.6 4.5 5.2 3 X 4 Y Z 5 5.2 > 4.5 > 3.6

Lesson 3.3 Ordering Decimals
Ordering Numbers on a Number Line Order the numbers x, y, and z from greatest to least. 3.06 3.15 3.22 3.0 X 3.1 Y Z 3.2 3.22 > 3.15 > 3.06

Lesson 3.3 Ordering Decimals
Comparing Decimals 3.2 3.1 3.0 3.06 3.15 3.22 3.22 > 3.15 > 3.06 X Y Z When you graph decimals on a number line to compare them, the greater number is farther to the right. You can also compare decimals by looking at their place values. How?

3 STEPS FOR COMPARING & ORDERING DECIMALS 5.796 and 5.85
Copy in your notebook Ordering Decimals 3 STEPS FOR COMPARING & ORDERING DECIMALS and 5.85 Write the decimals in a column, lining up the decimal points. 5 . 7 9 6 8 2. If necessary, write zeros to the right of the decimals so that all decimals have the same number of decimal places. 3. Compare place values from left to right. Since 8 > 7, > 5.796

Lesson 3.3 Ordering Decimals
YOUR TURN Try in your notebook Order the numbers from greatest to least. 9.5, 9.35, 9.65 1.01, 0.00, 1.00, 0.11, 1.10, 0.10, 1.11

Use <, =, or > to complete each statement.
