# Max Maths, Year 2, Work Book, Equal sharing

## Maths Resource Description

The Max Maths Workbook for Year 2 introduces young learners to the concept of equal sharing through engaging division exercises. In Practice 1, students are encouraged to visually group objects such as cupcakes, muffins, pretzels, cookies, circles, triangles, and squares into equal sets. They then write the corresponding division sentence for each set of grouped items. For example, students might circle groups of 3 cupcakes and note down how many groups they've made, forming a division equation that represents the exercise.

Moving forward, the workbook presents exercises where students observe groups of crayons and translate these visual clusters into division sentences, enhancing their understanding of how division represents equal sharing. Additionally, learners are tasked with drawing groups of circles to illustrate given division sentences, such as dividing 8 into groups of 2 to make 4 equal groups. The workbook also includes activities where students must identify correct and incorrect division sentences, helping them to verify their understanding of division facts. Finally, a matching exercise is provided where children pair division sentences with their correct answers, reinforcing their division skills and their ability to connect mathematical expressions with their outcomes.
