# Max Maths, Year 2, Try it, Making pictograms (2)

## Maths Resource Description

As part of the Year 2 curriculum, Max Maths introduces students to the concept of making pictograms through a practical exercise. In this activity, the children are asked to complete a frequency table that lists different ice cream flavours and their corresponding frequencies. The table already has an entry for lemon flavour, which has a frequency of 3, indicating that there are three lemon ice creams. The children must fill in the frequencies for the chocolate and strawberry flavours based on the data provided or collected.

Following the frequency table task, the students are then instructed to complete a bar graph. This visual representation is designed to show the number of ice creams of different flavours available in the shop. The bar graph has a scale running from 0 to 10, and the flavours listed are chocolate, lemon, and strawberry. The children must use the frequency data to draw bars of the correct height for each flavour, with the lemon flavour bar already reaching up to the number 3. This exercise helps students to understand how to translate numerical data into a visual format and to compare quantities in a clear and engaging way.
