From a CGP textbook 'Gametes have a haploid number of chromosomes- they only contain one copy of each chromosome in a homologous pair'

If a homologous pair is defined as 'a pair of matching chromosomes', how can gametes contain a homologous pair if there is only one copy of each type of chromosome?

It doesn't, but that would make more sense

Wouldn't it be each gamete has a sister chromatid from each member of a homologous pair ? As in , there are 4 chromatids in a homologous pair and 4 daughter cells
