In the Max Maths curriculum for Year 2, students delve into the world of 3D shapes, learning to distinguish between their different properties. The lesson encourages students to observe various 3D objects and discuss their characteristics with peers. Some of these shapes have flat faces, like the sides of a Rubik's cube or a box, which are examples of polyhedrons. Others, such as a tennis ball, have curved surfaces, and there are also shapes that combine both flat and curved faces, exemplified by objects like a sharpener or a party hat. This interactive session fosters collaborative learning and helps children to articulate and understand the geometric features of everyday items.

The learning activity prompts students to engage with real-life objects that illustrate the concepts being taught. By examining a Rubik's cube or a box, children can identify and count the flat faces, while a tennis ball offers a tactile example of a shape with a curved surface. A sharpener, often with its mixed surfaces, serves as a tangible example of a shape that incorporates both flat and curved faces. The party hat, typically a cone, also provides a practical demonstration of a shape with a flat circular base and a pointed top with a curved surface. This hands-on approach helps to solidify the students' understanding of 3D shapes in a fun and interactive manner.
