# Max Maths, Year 1, Practice, Counting to 20

In the Max Maths practice for Year 1, students are encouraged to enhance their counting skills by adding numbers up to 20. The "Let's Practise" section provides a simple yet effective exercise where students are asked to complete a series of sums by adding different numbers to 10. For instance, they will determine what 10 and 5 make together, then move on to add 6, 9, and another 10 to the base number. This activity not only reinforces their understanding of basic addition but also helps them become more confident in counting to 20.

The exercise continues with a second set of problems, this time varying the numbers added to 10, including three, zero, and two, as well as combining eight with ten. These variations are designed to solidify the pupils' addition skills. Additionally, there is a "Maths Challenge" where students are tasked with counting the number of legs in different pictures, which is a fun and engaging way to apply their counting knowledge in a practical context. To further support their learning, students are directed to workbook pages 16 to 18, where they can find additional exercises and problems to practice their counting to 20.
