Metric System by NUMBEROCK Video Subscription Banner

Video Description:

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!

Less Than Greater Than Song Lyrics:

0.55 and 0.065
The greater number is the alligator's preference.
He looks at the place values from left to right;
five's the greatest tenths place, so he takes a big bite.

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

0.107 and 0.11
The greater value is what the alligator gets.
He looks at the place values from left to right;
one’s the greatest hundredths place, so he takes a big bite.

0.209 and 4.5
The gator eats the one with the greater contents.
He looks at the place values from left to right;
Four’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.
