Being able to compare and order numbers is about knowing the size of numbers. Knowing 1 to 100 is straightforward, but what about negative numbers or numbers with decimal points? Is 0.7 larger than 0.07? What about larger numbers like 9,973 and 9,987 - which is larger? If you know your units tens, hundreds and thousands, along with your tenths, hundredths and thousandths, you should be able to work the answers out.
