# Max Maths, Year 2, Try it, Ordinal numbers to 50

## Maths Resource Description

In the Max Maths Year 2 curriculum, students are introduced to ordinal numbers up to 50 through engaging exercises. The "Try it" section begins by asking students to match ordinal numbers with their written word forms. For example, they must pair '13th' with 'thirteenth' and '42nd' with 'forty-second'. This exercise helps to reinforce their understanding of ordinal number names and their corresponding positions.

Following the matching activity, students are challenged to arrange a given set of ordinal numbers in order from the smallest to the biggest. They must sequence numbers such as '34th', '15th', and '50th' correctly, which further develops their comprehension of ordinal number sequences. In the "Let’s Practise" section, students are tasked with converting cardinal numbers into ordinal numbers by adding the correct suffixes: 'th', 'st', 'nd', or 'rd'. For instance, they would transform the number 12 into '12th', 32 into '32nd', and 45 into '45th'. This exercise is designed to solidify their grasp of ordinal number formation and usage in everyday contexts.
