# Transcript: More or Less (Greater Than and Less Than)

Text Reads, “TVO Kids Presents”.

Colourful animated numbers, zero to nine, jump in a line then form the title “Wacky Number Songs”.

An upbeat song plays: IT'S THE WACKY WACKY

NUMBER SONGS.

OH YEAH.

A caption reads “With Ava”.

Ava stands in a brightly lit bedroom. She wears a striped yellow shirt under a pair of overalls. Her pigtails hang over her shoulders.

Ava says, WANT TO KNOW SOMETHING I REALLY

LIKE ABOUT MATH?

THE WAY IT USES SYMBOLS LIKE

PLUS AND MINUS AS SHORT CUTS

INSTEAD OF WRITING THE ACTUAL

WORDS.

THERE ARE 2 SYMBOLS THAT LOOK A

LOT ALIKE AND USED TO CONFUSE

ME.

GREATER THAN AND LESS THAN.

I HAVE SOME COOL TRICKS THAT

HELP ME REMEMBER WHICH SYMBOL IS

WHICH!

Ava dances in between the numbers 12 and 24. She flips a poster, which has greater than and less than symbols on either side. Shapes and numbers float behind her.

Ava sings: GREATER THAN, LESS THAN WHICH

IS WHICH?

YOU GOTTA KNOW WHEN TO MAKE THE

SWITCH.

THE BIGGER SIDE WITH

THE OPEN SPACE.

THE BIGGER

NUMBER IT HAS TO FACE.

A 9 and a 3 appear on either side of Ava.

Ava sings: 9 IS GREATER THAT 3, SO YOU

SEE.

THE BIGGER SIDE FACES

9, EASY.

3 IS A SMALLER NUMBER THAN 9.

FLIP TO THE SMALLER SIDE OF

THE SIGN.

20 cups of lemonade fill a table in front of a red-haired cartoon girl.

Ava sings: JENNY SOLD 20 CUPS OF

LEMONADE.

A dark-haired cartoon boy stands behind a table with 5 glasses of lemonade on it.

Ava sing: PACO ONLY SOLD 5

CUPS, I'M AFRAID.

COMPARE THEM, 5 IS

LESS THAN 20.

SO PACO SOLD LESS CUPS THAN

JENNY.

Ava sways to the music.

Ava sings: HERE'S MY FAVOURITE TRICK FOR

LESS THAN.

MAKE A BIG L WITH YOUR LEFT

HAND.

L STANDS FOR LESS AND

THAT'S A GOOD CLUE.

TO REMEMBER

WHICH SYMBOL TO USE.

The song ends.

Ava rests her hand on her hip. She returns to her bedroom holding the cardboard.

Ava says: JUST REMEMBER THE BIG OPEN

SIDE OF THE SYMBOL FACES THE

BIGGER NUMBER.

AND THE SMALL POINTY SIDE FACES

THE SMALLER NUMBER.

SEE YOU NEXT TIME!

The animated numbers spell out “Wacky Number Songs”.
