# Max Maths, Year 2, Work Book, Amounts of money

## Maths Resource Description

In the 'Max Maths, Year 2, Workbook', young learners are introduced to the concept of handling and calculating different amounts of money. Practice 2 is dedicated to reinforcing their ability to recognise and write down the value of various coins and notes. The first part of the exercise presents a series of images depicting coins and notes, prompting students to write the corresponding amount of money for each set. This could range from a mix of coins to different denominations of notes, providing a practical approach to familiarising with currency.

The following section of the workbook continues to build on these money skills by asking students to examine illustrations of dollar notes and coins, and then note down the total amount displayed. This encourages attention to detail and basic addition skills. The third and final task in this section challenges the students to select the correct combination of notes and coins that sum up to a specified amount. This activity not only tests their understanding of the value of different denominations but also their ability to use these values in a practical context, such as making up a total purchase amount. The workbook's structured approach, with incremental difficulty and varied tasks, ensures a comprehensive learning experience for Year 2 students about the practical use of money.
