# Max Maths, Year 2, Learn together, Angles (1)

## Maths Resource Description

In the Max Maths Year 2 curriculum, young learners are introduced to the basic concept of angles in a fun and interactive way. One of the 'Learn Together' activities involves Tya, a character who uses two ice-cream sticks, attaching them together with a pin. This simple setup creates a pivot point at the pin, allowing the sticks to rotate around it. The movement or turning of the blue ice-cream stick away from its original position is described as an angle. This hands-on activity is designed to help students visualise and understand what an angle is in a tangible and relatable manner.

The lesson aims to make the concept of angles accessible and engaging for Year 2 students. By using everyday items such as ice-cream sticks, children can easily grasp the idea that an angle is formed by the rotation or turning of one line from another around a fixed point. The visual representation of the blue ice-cream stick moving to form an angle provides a clear and simple example of how angles are a part of the world around us. This foundational understanding sets the stage for further exploration and learning about angles as students progress in their mathematical education.
