# Max Maths, Year 2, Work Book, Odd and even numbers

## Maths Resource Description

In the Max Maths Workbook for Year 2, Practice 7 focuses on distinguishing between odd and even numbers through a hands-on activity involving dots. The exercise is designed to help young learners visualise and understand the concept of pairing up items to determine if there is an even distribution or an odd one left over. Students are asked to circle groups of two dots and then decide whether the total number of dots is even or odd. This is done by ticking the appropriate box next to each set of dots. An example is provided to guide them in the process.

The page is likely filled with illustrations of dots in various configurations, labelled from (a) to (h). For each set, there are two boxes marked 'even' and 'odd', and the students must tick the box that corresponds to the total number of dots after circling the pairs. This activity not only reinforces the concept of odd and even numbers but also encourages fine motor skills and attention to detail. By engaging in this practical task, children can build a foundation for number sense that will be crucial for their mathematical development.
