# Max Maths, Year 2, Game time, Comparing and ordering numbers to 100

## Maths Resource Description

Max Maths introduces a fun and educational game for Year 2 students to help them understand and practise comparing and ordering numbers up to 100. The game is designed to be played in small groups of five, making it a perfect classroom activity. Each player takes turns to roll a die twice. The first roll determines the tens place, and the second roll determines the ones place of their two-digit number. For example, if a player rolls a 4 and then a 3, their number would be 43.

After each player has created their two-digit number, the group compares the numbers to see who has the smallest one. The player with the smallest number is eliminated from the round. The game continues in this manner, with players rolling the die, creating numbers, and comparing them, until only one player remains. This winner is declared the champion of the game. Through this interactive activity, children learn to understand the value of tens and ones in a two-digit number and develop their skills in comparing numerical values in a fun and engaging way.
