# Max Maths, Year 1, Work Book, Comparing numbers to 10

The Max Maths Workbook for Year 1 provides engaging exercises to help young learners grasp the concept of comparing numbers up to 10. In Practice 4, children are introduced to various activities that encourage them to identify, compare, and match quantities and numbers. One task involves matching a set of eggs to the corresponding number of chicks and determining which group is larger. The students are asked to circle the correct number of eggs and chicks, decide if the sets are the same, and identify whether there are more eggs or chicks.

Further activities include counting bees and flowers and ticking the set with matching quantities. The workbook also challenges students to circle the set that has more or fewer items, reinforcing their understanding of quantity comparison. Additionally, the workbook presents sentences that need to be completed by identifying which set has more or fewer items, such as safety pins versus paper clips. Exercises progress to having students circle the smaller or bigger number among pairs, and colour words to indicate which number is bigger or smaller. The practice concludes with tasks where children write the word 'bigger' or 'smaller' to compare sets of numbers, solidifying their comprehension of numerical comparison.
