# Max Maths, Year 2, Learn together, Addition within 100 without regrouping (1)

In the Max Maths programme for Year 2, one of the key concepts taught is addition within 100 without regrouping. This foundational skill in mathematics helps young learners to understand how to combine two numbers together without the need to carry over values to the next column. For instance, consider a scenario where Samir has 14 coloured pencils and Tya has 23. To find out the total number of coloured pencils they have, students are encouraged to break down the numbers into tens and ones before adding them together.

The process begins by deconstructing the numbers 14 and 23 into their tens and ones components: 14 is made up of 10 and 4, while 23 consists of 20 and 3. By adding the tens first (10 + 20) and then the ones (4 + 3), students can easily combine the numbers to find the total. In this example, 10 plus 20 equals 30, and 4 plus 3 equals 7, which when combined give us 37. This method simplifies the addition process, making it more approachable for young learners and ensuring they can confidently add numbers within 100 without the complexity of regrouping.
