# Max Maths, Year 2, Work Book, Making pictograms (1)

In the 'Max Maths' workbook for Year 2, one of the exercises focuses on 'Making pictograms (1)' as part of a section on data handling. In this exercise, students are given the practical task of counting various items such as knives, forks, and spoons. They are then required to write the correct number of each item before completing a corresponding pictogram. This visual representation of data helps to reinforce their understanding of quantities and symbols used in pictograms, with each symbol representing a certain number of items.

Further practice involves interpreting pictograms related to different scenarios. Students examine a pictogram showing the favourite sports of learners, where they must deduce information such as the number of learners who prefer swimming and identify the most and least popular sports. Another activity includes counting items in a shop, like teddy bears and footballs, and answering questions based on the pictogram provided. Additionally, students count various fruits and insects, fill in frequency tables with their findings, and then use this data to draw bar graphs, giving them a comprehensive experience in data representation and interpretation. These activities are designed to be engaging and educational, providing a solid foundation in data handling for young learners.
