# Max Maths, Year 2, Learn together, Addition within 100 without regrouping (4)

In the Max Maths programme for Year 2, students are encouraged to learn together as they explore addition within 100 without regrouping. In a particular exercise, they are tasked with finding the total value of a set of coins. To illustrate the process, the exercise breaks down the addition of 43 and 16 into more manageable parts. This method involves separating the tens and ones before combining them, making it easier for young learners to understand.

The sum of 43 and 16 is initially split into 40 + 3 and 10 + 6, respectively. Students then combine the tens (40 + 10) and the ones (3 + 6) separately. They find that 3 ones plus 6 ones equal 9 ones, and 4 tens plus 1 ten equal 5 tens. By adding these together, the students arrive at the final sum: 40 + 10 + 3 + 6 equals 50 + 9, which in turn equals 59. This step-by-step approach helps students to clearly see how the numbers in the counters add up to make 59, reinforcing their understanding of addition without regrouping.
