In the "Max Maths" workbook for Year 1, young learners are encouraged to delve into the world of addition through engaging story problems. Practice 4, titled "Making and solving addition stories," is designed to help students apply their understanding of addition in practical scenarios. For instance, one story problem asks students to calculate the total number of soft toys by adding together Samir's 4 bunnies and Jade's 3 teddy bears. The question is presented in a straightforward manner, prompting the children to combine the two amounts to find the sum, thereby reinforcing their addition skills.

The workbook continues with a variety of similar addition stories, each one crafted to strengthen the pupils' ability to combine two groups and find the total. Questions range from combining red and white balloons to tallying up the total number of pets by adding guinea pigs and cats. Additionally, students are tasked with creating their own addition stories and sentences, further personalising their learning experience. This could involve counting boys and girls to find the total number of children, or adding together different fruits to calculate a total. The workbook also includes a section where students can complete addition sentences, such as finding the missing number that, when added to another, equals a given sum. These exercises are designed to be intuitive and enjoyable, ensuring that the children remain engaged and develop a solid foundation in basic arithmetic.
