MAT04 Targeted Standards (NF) Domain: Number and Operations  Fractions Cluster: Understand decimal notation for fractions, and compare decimal fractions.
MAT04.NF.07 Compare two decimals to hundredths by reasoning about their size. Recognize that comparisons are valid only when the two decimals refer to the same whole. Record the results of comparisons with the symbols >, =, and < and justify the conclusions, e.g., by using a visual model.
