# Max Maths, Year 1, Practice, Comparing numbers to 20

In the 'Max Maths' Year 1 practice on comparing numbers up to 20, young learners are invited to sharpen their numerical skills through a series of engaging exercises. The first task presents two numbers: 18 and 13. Children are prompted to determine which number is larger and by what margin. This exercise helps them understand the concept of magnitude and difference between numbers.

The second activity introduces another pair of numbers: 20 and 16. Here, the students are asked to identify the smaller number and calculate how much smaller it is compared to the larger number. The third task increases the challenge by presenting three numbers: 13, 11, and 16. Students must discern the largest and smallest numbers from the set and then sequence the numbers from largest to smallest. These exercises are excellent for helping children practice comparison and ordering of numbers, foundational skills in their mathematical development. For further practice and reinforcement, the workbook pages 35 to 37 are recommended.
