# Compare and Order Numbers (Year 5)

In KS2 Maths, kids learn to compare and order numbers. This includes negative numbers, decimals, and big numbers with five or six figures. By Year Five, they also know symbols like >, <, and =. This quiz, for 9-10 year olds, helps practice these skills.

Comparing and ordering numbers means putting them in order by size. Knowing the value of a number helps, like how 6 in the hundreds is 600, but in the thousands, it's 6,000. Try the quiz and see how good you are at comparing and ordering numbers!
