# Max Maths, Year 1, Learn together, Comparing numbers to 10

In the Max Maths Year 1 curriculum, young learners are encouraged to develop their counting skills and begin to compare quantities. In one of the exercises, children are asked to count the number of kittens depicted in the material. Following this, they count the number of chicks. The key learning outcome is for the children to determine which group has a larger number and to understand the concept of 'more'. The exercise concludes with the statement that there are more chicks than kittens, helping to reinforce comparative terms and the understanding of quantity.

Another engaging activity within the same lesson involves counting butterflies and flowers. This time, the objective is for the children to recognize when there are fewer of one thing compared to another. After counting both the butterflies and the flowers, the children learn to use the term 'fewer' to describe the comparison, stating that there are fewer butterflies than flowers. These exercises are designed to be interactive and visual, making it easier for the children to grasp the concepts of comparing numbers and understanding quantities up to 10.
