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

## Maths Resource Description

In the Max Maths Year 1 practice section on counting by twos, fives, and tens, students are encouraged to develop their number sequence skills. On workbook page 94, they are presented with a series of exercises under the 'Let's Try It' section, where they must use a 100-square to help them identify and complete patterns in number sequences. For example, in question 1(a), students are asked to find the missing number between 80 and 100, while in 1(b), they need to determine the numbers that fit sequentially between 90 and 94. These exercises help to reinforce their understanding of counting in increments and the numerical order of tens and twos.

The 'Let's Practise' section offers additional exercises where students must identify the next number in a given sequence, such as 21, 31, 41, 51, and then determine what comes next. In another task, they must fill in missing numbers within a sequence, for instance, finding the number that comes between 24 and 44. These activities are designed to build confidence in recognizing and continuing patterns, a fundamental skill in early mathematics education. The exercises vary in complexity, catering to different levels of ability and ensuring that all students can progress at a comfortable pace.
