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

## Maths Resource Description

Max Maths Year 1 Workbook offers engaging exercises for young learners to master counting in multiples, specifically focusing on counting by twos, fives, and tens. In Practice 5, students are encouraged to develop their numerical patterns recognition skills. The first task requires them to count in twos and identify the missing numbers in a sequence. For example, they are presented with sequences like "4, 6, 8, ___" and are asked to determine the next number in the pattern. This exercise not only reinforces their understanding of even numbers but also enhances their ability to continue sequences.

The second activity shifts the focus to counting in fives and tens, which is an essential skill for understanding the decimal system and for future multiplication learning. Students are asked to fill in the blanks in various number patterns, such as "10, 15, ___, 25" when counting by fives, or "100, 90, 80, ___" when counting by tens. These exercises help to strengthen their mental arithmetic and to grasp the concept of skip counting, which is a fundamental building block for more advanced mathematical concepts. The workbook's layout is designed to be clear and child-friendly, making it an ideal resource for practice both in the classroom and at home.
