Early Learning III: More Than/Less Than
More Than/Less Than teaches the relationship between numbers,
starting with greater and less and progressing to include equal. The
teacher can select numbers ranging from 1 to 5 up to 1 to 19. The
default values are 1 to 9.
On the lower levels, a number of objects are drawn inside two boxes.
The student determines the relationship between the two sets by
either counting the objects or comparing the size of the boxes and
pressing the ">" or "<" key. As the program progresses, the boxes
are taken away so that the student must count the objects. Numbers
are introduced on the screen to coincide with the number of objects.
The middle levels increase the use of numbers and decrease the use
of objects to count. As the level of difficulty increases, some
"equals" problems are introduced.
On the higher levels, pairs of numbers to add and eventually pairs
of numbers to subtract are presented as equations for the student to
solve.




Levels of Difficulty
Level 1
The objects on the screen are placed in straight lines inside boxes. The
differences between the two numbers is always at least 50% to provide an easy
comparison.




Level 2
The differences are reduced to 1 or more.
Level 3
The objects are not always arranged in straight lines.




Level 4
The boxes are taken away and numbers are introduced as reinforcement
after an answer. The differences are at least 50% and the objects
are again arranged in straight lines.
Level 5
The differences are reduced to 1 or more.




Level 6
The objects are not always arranged in straight lines.
Level 7
Numbers are presented on the screen so the student does not have to
count before solving the problem.




Level 8
"Equal" problems are now included.
Level 9
No objects are presented for the student to count.




Level 10
The two sides of the equation are broken down into addition
problems, with either the first or the second number the same on
both sides of the equation.
Level 11
One of the numbers on each side of the equation is always the same.




Level 12
The numbers are completely random.
Level 13
Subtraction problems are used with one number always the same on
both sides of the equation.
Level 14
The numbers are completely random.
