# Max Maths, Year 1, Work Book, Addition using number bonds

The Max Maths workbook for Year 1 students provides an engaging and educational approach to learning addition through the use of number bonds. In Practice 2, young learners are introduced to the concept of number bonds, a fundamental part of early maths education. The workbook begins with simple exercises where children are asked to complete number bonds by filling in missing numbers. The examples given are designed to be clear and easy to follow, ensuring that children understand the concept of combining two numbers to make a whole.

Further activities in the workbook include a variety of number bond exercises such as looking at pictures to create number bonds, counting beads to form number bonds, and even making their own number bonds. These exercises are progressively challenging, which helps to reinforce the children's understanding and fluency in addition. The workbook also introduces problem-solving tasks where students apply their knowledge in practical situations, such as sharing chocolates equally between friends, while still using number bonds to show their working. These activities not only improve mathematical skills but also encourage logical thinking and reasoning.
