# Max Maths, Year 2, Learn together, Doubles

## Maths Resource Description

In the 'Max Maths' curriculum for Year 2, the concept of 'Doubles' is introduced to young learners in a fun and interactive way. The lesson begins with a simple task where Tya's teacher asks her to find the double of 4. To achieve this, Tya uses a practical approach by counting two sets of 4 blocks. Through this visual representation, she is able to conclude that double 4 equals 8. This hands-on method proves to be an effective way for children to understand the process of doubling numbers.

Moving on from there, Tya applies the same technique to double the number 6. By using blocks again, she counts out two groups of 6 and discovers that double 6 is the same as adding 6 plus 6, which equals 12. To further solidify this mathematical concept, it's also explained that doubling a number can be represented as multiplication. In this case, 6 multiplied by 2 also results in 12. These exercises provide a clear and tangible way for children to grasp the idea of doubling numbers, using both addition and multiplication methods, and sets a strong foundation for their understanding of basic arithmetic.
