# Max Maths, Year 3, Try it, Placing numbers on a number line marked in multiples of 10 or 100

## Maths Resource Description

In a Year 3 mathematics lesson from Max Maths, students are encouraged to enhance their understanding of number lines and the placement of numbers within them. The 'Try it' section of the lesson focuses on placing specific numbers on a number line that is marked in multiples of 10 or 100. This practical activity involves three different scenarios where students are asked to identify the correct position for a given number.

The first scenario (a) asks students to place the number 706 on a number line that starts at 600 and ends at 1000, with major intervals marked at every 100 units. In the second scenario (b), the task is to place the number 363 on a number line with intervals between 200 and 500, again marked at every 100 units. The final scenario (c) requires more precision, as students must place the number 218 on a more detailed number line that spans from 200 to 300, with intervals marked at every 10 units. Following the 'Try it' exercise, the 'Let's Practise' section presents students with two number lines, each containing a sequence of numbers marked in intervals of 10 between 300 and 400. Students must circle the number that has been correctly placed on the number line, reinforcing their ability to accurately read and interpret number lines.
