# Max Maths, Year 2, Practice, Equal sharing

## Maths Resource Description

In a Year 2 maths practice session, students are introduced to the concept of equal sharing, a fundamental aspect of division. The exercise begins with a visual representation of coloured dots that need to be divided equally into five groups. This practical approach helps students to understand how division works in a tangible way. They are prompted to calculate how many dots would be in each group when the total number of dots is divided by five. This real-life example of sharing illustrates the division process in a manner that is relatable and easy for young learners to grasp.

Following the initial example, the practice session continues with a series of division sentences that the students are asked to complete. These sentences cover a variety of basic division scenarios, such as dividing by 1, 2, 3, 4, 6, and 8. Each sentence presents a different total number to be divided, allowing the students to apply their understanding of equal sharing to solve the problems. This exercise not only reinforces the division concept but also aids in building the students' confidence in their arithmetic skills. The practice session concludes with a reference to continue the learning journey on a specific workbook page, ensuring a structured progression through the maths curriculum.
