# Max Maths, Year 2, Learn together, Making pictograms (7)

## Maths Resource Description

In a Year 2 maths lesson from Max Maths, students are introduced to the concept of pictograms through a practical example involving party fruits. Samir is organising a party and has the task of counting different types of fruits. He diligently records the quantity of each fruit on the respective boxes. The fruits counted include 3 lemons, 2 pineapples, 4 apples, 8 bananas, and 1 watermelon. These quantities are then represented visually in a pictogram, a simple and effective way to display data that young learners can easily understand and interpret.

The pictogram titled 'Party Fruits' features symbols for each type of fruit: lemon, watermelon, banana, pineapple, and apple. In this pictogram, each symbol represents one piece of fruit. This direct representation helps students grasp the concept of data representation without the need for complex charts or graphs. The lesson encourages children to engage with basic data handling by visualising the number of fruits through pictorial symbols, thereby making the process of learning about pictograms interactive and enjoyable.
