# Max Maths, Year 2, Learn together, Comparing masses (3)

## Maths Resource Description

In a Year 2 mathematics lesson from Max Maths, children are learning to compare masses through practical examples. The lesson involves observing objects placed on three different balances, which provides a visual and interactive way for the students to understand the concept of weight comparison. The task set before the students is to identify which of the objects is the heaviest and which is the lightest by analyzing the balances.

Through the given exercise, the children deduce that the camera is heavier than the games console, and since the games console has the same mass as the mobile phone, the camera must also be heavier than the mobile phone. Consequently, they conclude that the camera is the heaviest object. In contrast, by comparing the mass of the calculator with the other objects, it is established that the calculator is lighter than the games console. This logical comparison leads to the understanding that the calculator is the lightest object among those presented. Such exercises are crucial in helping children develop their reasoning skills and their ability to use comparative language in the context of mass.
