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

In an engaging lesson from Max Maths for Year 3, students continue their journey in numeracy by learning to count up to 1000. The lesson breaks down numbers into hundreds, tens, and ones to help children understand the value of each digit in a three-digit number. For instance, the number 537 is composed of 5 hundreds (which is 500), 3 tens (which is 30), and 7 ones (which is 7). When combined, these parts make the number five hundred and thirty-seven. This method of understanding numbers aids children in grasping the concept of place value and the base-ten system used in mathematics.

Another example provided to the students is the number 762, which is dissected into its constituent parts: 7 hundreds (700), 6 tens (60), and 2 ones (2). When these are added together, they result in the number seven hundred and sixty-two. By breaking down numbers in this way, children learn to articulate and comprehend larger numbers with confidence. To reinforce these concepts and engage with practical exercises, students are directed to work on pages 2 to 4 in their workbooks, where they can apply their new knowledge through a series of activities and problems.
