# Max Maths, Year 2, Try it, Multiplying by 5 and 10 (2)

The 'Max Maths, Year 2' resource introduces young learners to the concept of multiplication as a means of finding the total number of items in groups of the same size. In one of the exercises, students are asked to determine the total number of eggs by counting in groups of 5s or 10s. This exercise helps them understand that multiplication is a quicker and more efficient method than counting each item individually. They are encouraged to express the total as a multiplication sentence, with the format 'number of groups × number of items in each group = total number of items'. The answer to how many eggs there are will be revealed upon completing the multiplication sentence, reinforcing their understanding of the concept.

The 'Let's Practise' section provides additional multiplication problems to help solidify the students' grasp of multiplying by 5 and 10. Problems such as '5 × 5', '4 × 10', '3 × 5', '9 × 5', '6 × 10', and '7 × 5' are presented for students to solve. These exercises are designed to build fluency in multiplication and to familiarize students with the patterns that emerge when multiplying by these specific numbers. To further practice and consolidate their learning, students are directed to workbook pages 97 to 99, where they can find more exercises and problems to work on.
