# Max Maths, Year 2, Practice, Addition within 100 without regrouping

## Maths Resource Description

In the Max Maths programme for Year 2, students are encouraged to practice addition within 100 without the need for regrouping. The practice activity, designed to be both educational and engaging, starts with a set of straightforward addition problems. Students are tasked with finding the sum of two numbers, such as in the examples provided: (a) 11 + 22, (b) 35 + 10, and so forth, with a total of six different addition problems to solve. This exercise is aimed at reinforcing their mental arithmetic skills and understanding of addition without the complexity of carrying over numbers.

To make the activity more interactive, students are instructed to form small groups ranging from 2 to 5 members. Within these groups, they create two sets of cards, labelled Set A and Set B, each containing different numbers. The game involves drawing one card from each set and mentally calculating the sum of the two numbers. The other group members serve as verifiers, checking the accuracy of the answer. Correct answers earn the player one point. The game is structured to be played in turns, with each student having the opportunity to demonstrate their addition skills over the course of five rounds. For further practice and reinforcement, students are directed to workbook pages 40 to 41, where additional exercises await them.
