# Max Maths, Year 2, Try it, Comparing and ordering numbers to 100

## Maths Resource Description

In the 'Max Maths' book designed for Year 2 pupils, there's a section titled 'Comparing and Ordering Numbers to 100' that encourages young learners to engage with numbers in a practical way. The 'Let's Try It' activity is a hands-on exercise where children are tasked with identifying larger and smaller numbers. For the first question, they are presented with two options, labelled (a) and (b), and must determine which one represents the bigger number. This exercise helps to develop their understanding of numerical value and reinforces their ability to compare two-digit numbers.

The second question flips the script, asking the students to pick out the smaller number from a given set. With options presented as Set A and Set B, the children must use their knowledge of number order to make the correct choice. This activity not only tests their comprehension of numerical order but also lays the groundwork for more complex mathematical concepts. The workbook format, with its clear instructions and structured approach, provides a supportive environment for young learners to build confidence in their mathematical abilities.
