# Max Maths, Year 2, Learn together, Amounts of money (3)

In the 'Max Maths' curriculum for Year 2, students continue their exploration of money in the lesson titled 'Amounts of Money (3)'. This particular activity focuses on identifying and understanding different amounts of money. One of the exercises, marked as (d), presents the students with the task of recognising and possibly working with the amount of $86.00. This figure is used to help children become familiar with whole dollar amounts and to understand the concept of currency in practical terms.

Another exercise within the same lesson, labelled as (e), introduces a slightly more complex amount of $72.85. This amount includes both dollars and cents, providing a valuable opportunity for students to learn about decimal values in the context of money. Through these exercises, children are encouraged to develop their numeracy skills, particularly in adding, subtracting, and understanding the value of different denominations, which are essential for real-life financial literacy.
