# Max Maths, Year 3, Learn together, Counting up to 1000 (2)

Within the Year 3 curriculum of Max Maths, students are encouraged to learn and practise counting in hundreds, tens, and ones, all the way up to 1000. A practical example is given where Samir has 100 blocks, and Jade has 10 blocks. When combined, the total number of blocks they have is 110. This number is expressed in words as 'one hundred and ten', helping children to understand the concept of place value and how to read and write numbers correctly.

Further exercises prompt students to visually interpret the number of blocks and articulate the numbers they represent. For instance, an arrangement of 2 hundreds blocks alongside 4 tens blocks equates to the number 240. Similarly, when there are 4 hundreds blocks and just 1 ten block, the total is 410. These activities are designed to reinforce the understanding of how different combinations of hundreds and tens contribute to forming various numbers, enhancing the students' ability to count confidently and accurately within the thousands range.
