# Max Maths, Year 2, Work Book, Comparing and ordering numbers to 100

The Max Maths workbook for Year 2 presents a series of activities focused on comparing and ordering numbers up to 100. Practice 3 introduces the concept by asking students to count the numbers in different sets and determine which is larger or smaller. The exercises guide children to first check the tens place and then the ones to make accurate comparisons. For example, they might be presented with two sets, A and B, and asked to fill in the blanks to state which set has the bigger or smaller number. This encourages them to apply their understanding of place value in a practical context.

Moving on to more complex tasks, the workbook provides exercises where students count the tens in each set and decide which is greater. They're reminded to check the tens before the ones, reinforcing the importance of place value. In subsequent activities, children are asked to tick the correct boxes to indicate whether Set A or Set B has more tens or ones and to determine which set represents the larger number. Other exercises involve circling the smaller number in a pair and ordering sets of numbers from smallest to largest or vice versa. These activities are designed to build confidence in number comparison and sequencing, laying a foundation for mathematical understanding.
