In the Max Maths Year 1 exercise, young learners are encouraged to engage with the concept of addition through storytelling. This interactive approach helps to contextualise numbers and mathematical operations in a way that is relatable and fun for children. The exercise presents a simple illustration with two parts labelled (a) and (b), each depicting a different set of objects that students are asked to count.

For instance, in part (a), there might be 3 apples on one side and 5 oranges on the other, leading to an addition story where children can say, "There are 3 apples and 5 oranges. How many fruits are there in total?" This prompts them to perform the addition 3 + 5 to find the sum, which is 8. Similarly, part (b) could show 1 cat and 4 dogs, where the addition story would be, "There is 1 cat and 4 dogs. How many pets are there altogether?" This guides them to calculate 1 + 4, equalling 5. To continue practising, students are directed to workbook pages 85 to 86, where they can explore more addition stories and solidify their understanding of basic addition.
