# Max Maths, Year 2, Practice, Ordinal numbers to 50

## Maths Resource Description

In this Year 2 Max Maths practice session, students are introduced to ordinal numbers up to 50. The exercise begins with a matching activity where children are tasked with pairing written ordinal numbers with their corresponding numerical form. For instance, they must match '13th' with 'thirteenth' and '42nd' with 'forty-second'. This activity helps to reinforce their understanding of the way ordinal numbers are written and spoken.

The next task requires students to arrange a given set of ordinal numbers in sequence from the smallest to the largest. They are given ordinal numbers such as '34th', '15th', and '50th', and they must order these correctly. This activity helps to develop their number sequencing skills and their understanding of ordinal positions. In the 'Let's Practise' section, students are then asked to convert cardinal numbers into ordinal numbers by adding the correct suffixes: 'th', 'st', 'nd', or 'rd'. They're given numbers like '12' and '32' and must write them as '12th' and '32nd', respectively. This part of the exercise enhances their knowledge of the rules for forming ordinal numbers and provides a practical application of these rules.
