# Max Maths, Year 3, Learn together, Counting up to 1000 (1)

In the 'Max Maths, Year 3' curriculum, young learners are introduced to the foundational concept of counting up to 1,000. This section, titled 'Let's Learn Together', begins with a fundamental arithmetic principle: the idea that 10 individual units, or 'ones', combine to form a single 'ten'. This is a building block for understanding larger numbers and is an essential part of the number system.

The lesson continues to build on this knowledge by explaining that 10 groups of 'tens' come together to make one 'hundred'. To help visualise these concepts, practical demonstrations using beads and blocks are suggested. For example, students can show how 10 beads, each representing one unit, can be grouped together to represent a 'ten'. Similarly, they can use blocks to illustrate how 10 sets of 'tens' can be assembled to make a 'hundred'. These hands-on activities are designed to reinforce the relationship between ones, tens, and hundreds, aiding the children in their understanding of counting and the composition of numbers up to 1,000.
