Greater Than or Less Than Parents: In year 2, children are taught the ‘greater than’ and ‘less than’ symbols (< and >), alongside the ‘equals’ symbol (=), and begin to use these symbols in number sentences. They often learn that the < and > symbols resemble a crocodile’s mouth, and the crocodile always eats the bigger number.
