# Max Maths, Year 1, Learn together, Counting by twos, fives and tens

## Maths Resource Description

The 'Max Maths' Year 1 learning material presents an engaging activity for children to practice counting by twos, fives, and tens. In this particular exercise, students are tasked with finding the missing numbers in a sequence. The sequences are laid out in a way that encourages the students to identify patterns and use them to determine the numbers that should fill the gaps. Each row represents a series of numbers increasing by tens, starting from different single-digit numbers. For example, one row begins with 1, followed by 11, 21, 31, and so forth, increasing by 10 each time.

Two sets of sequences are highlighted for special attention. The pink squares show a horizontal sequence where the numbers increase by 1, helping children understand the concept of consecutive numbers. The missing numbers in the pink squares are identified as 63, 64, 65, and 66. In contrast, the yellow squares focus on a vertical sequence, where the numbers increase by 10 with each step down. This helps children grasp the pattern of counting in tens. The missing numbers in the yellow squares are therefore 18, 28, 38, and 48. Through this activity, students consolidate their understanding of number sequences and patterns, which are fundamental skills in early mathematics education.
