# Max Maths, Year 2, Work Book, Volume

## Maths Resource Description

In the 'Max Maths' workbook for Year 2, children are introduced to the concept of volume through a series of engaging practice exercises. Practice 1 focuses on volume comparison, where students are asked to identify which container holds a greater quantity of liquid. They are presented with sets of containers and must tick the box under the one with the most liquid. This visual exercise helps students understand volume as the amount of space that a liquid occupies within a container and encourages them to make comparative assessments based on visual cues.

The subsequent exercises delve deeper into the concept of volume. Students are tasked with ranking containers according to their volume. For instance, they might arrange jugs in descending order, starting with the one with the greatest volume of liquid and ending with the smallest. Another activity involves arranging flasks, but this time they begin with the flask containing the least liquid and progress to the one with the most. Additionally, students are given illustrations of glasses with varying levels of liquid and must use colour to indicate the volume in each glass. They then make statements comparing the volumes, such as "The volume of water in Glass A is greater than the volume in Glass C." These activities not only reinforce the students' understanding of volume but also integrate comparison and ordering skills, which are fundamental to their mathematical development.
