#### Worksheet Overview

In this activity, two temperatures will be compared using the < (less than) and > (greater than) symbols.

Example

-3°C is less than 10°C so we write -3°C < 10°C

-3°C is more than -10°C so we write -3°C > -10°C

Remember that the numbers below 0 are getting colder! The further to the left of zero the numbers go, the colder/smaller they are.

Also, remember that positive numbers (on the right of zero) are always bigger/ warmer than negative numbers.

Are you happy with all that?
