Maths

How do we compare the mass of objects?

When comparing the mass of objects, we use these words:

  • heavier and heaviest
  • lighter and lightest

Top tip

Remember an object can be heavier than something else, even if it looks smaller.

The mass of two objects might be equal to each other, too.

 

Using symbols

We can use the symbols for more than and less than to compare the mass of objects. (We looked at this last week)

  • > means more than
  • < means less than
  • = means equal to or the same

 

Quick activity

Use the words heavier and lighter to compare the objects.

Here are some examples:

Remember

Two things can be the same mass. Smaller things can sometimes be heavier than larger things.
