SUMMARY:

Slater is a very hungry alligator who always eats the number that is greater! Watch him walk around his hometown marsh and swamp as he eats human food and goes apple picking for the largest apple he can find. On a somewhat unrelated side note, Slater has an Australian accent and will get quite chatty towards the end of the video!

Lyrics:
432 and 824
The gator eats the one that's worth more.
He looks at the place values from left to right;
eight’s the greatest hundreds place, so he takes a big bite.

The hungry alligator
eats the number that is greater.
The number that is least
is never part of his feast.

355 and 332
The gator needs to eat the one with the greater value.
He looks at the place values from left to right;
five’s the greatest tens place, so he takes a big bite.

145 and 149
The gator needs (or finds) the greater value on the number line.
He looks at the place values from left to right;
Nine’s the greatest ones place, so he takes a big bite.

Now the numbers are the same on both sides.
The gator wants to eat, but he can't decide.
Neither is greater or less; it's a perfect tie,
so the alligator writes an “equal” sign.

If there's a line underneath the “greater than” sign,
"greater than or equal to" is how the sign is defined.
Or write a line underneath the “less than” sign,
and "less than or equal to" is the name of this design.

This video addresses the following Common Core Standards:

K.CC.B.5 - Count to answer "how many" questions about as many as 20 things arranged in a line, a rectangular array, or a circle
K.CC.C.6 - Identify whether the number of objects in one group is greater than, less than, or equal to the number of objects in another group, e.g., by using matching and counting strategies.

1.NBT.B.2 - Understand that the two digits of a two-digit number represent amounts of tens and ones. Understand the following as special cases:
1.NBT.B.2.a - 10 can be thought of as a bundle of ten ones — called a "ten."
1.NBT.B.2.b - The numbers from 11 to 19 are composed of a ten and one, two, three, four, five, six, seven, eight, or nine ones.
1.NBT.B.2.c - The numbers 10, 20, 30, 40, 50, 60, 70, 80, 90 refer to one, two, three, four, five, six, seven, eight, or nine tens (and 0 ones).

2.NBT.A.1 - Understand that the three digits of a three-digit number represent amounts of hundreds, tens, and ones; e.g., 706 equals 7 hundreds, 0 tens, and 6 ones. Understand the following as special cases:
2.NBT.A.1.a - 100 can be thought of as a bundle of ten tens — called a "hundred."
2.NBT.A.1.b - The numbers 100, 200, 300, 400, 500, 600, 700, 800, 900 refer to one, two, three, four, five, six, seven, eight, or nine hundreds (and 0 tens and 0 ones).
2.NBT.A.4 - Compare two three-digit numbers based on meanings of the hundreds, tens, and ones...
4.NBT.A.2 - Compare two multi-digit numbers based on meanings of the digits in each place ...
5.NBT.A.3 - Read, write, and compare decimals to thousandths.

http://www.NUMBEROCK.com is a provider of educational videos for kids which was founded by an innovative 5th Grade teacher who envisioned a new kind of classroom where students got energized for math class. Parents of his students even noticed their children singing mathematics songs around the dinner table well beyond school hours.

Seeing his students so enthusiastic when it was time for math was welcome, to say the least! But the epiphanous moment was when students were singing math songs all-day long like they were in the American Top 40!

We'll be releasing new songs and videos regularly until eventually addressing all the math skills and concepts that a Common Core Curriculum demands from 1st Grade to 2nd Grade, and even 5th Grade to 6th Grade.

Our main goal is to make teaching and learning math more fun and more interactive. SchoolHouse Rock! has done this in other subjects for us in the previous generations.
