At Learning Out Of The Box, we always strive to help primary school children learn the smarter way.
If you are a parent, you might be picking up this book because you have heard about Singapore Math, or you are looking for resources to help your child develop problem-solving skills.
If you are a student, you might already have basic mastery of your math syllabus, but you are wondering how these skills and concepts are applicable in real life. Or, you might be wondering if math is just addition, subtraction, multiplication and division.
Singapore Math Problem Sums Story has all the answers you are looking for.
This book comprises topics in our Singapore primary education syllabus. The aim of highlighting these topics and their essentials is to help students build upon their existing skills and knowledge with practical and proven tips from the Singapore Math syllabus to excel in whichever Math level they are in.
Mathematics in Singapore used to be about rote learning and doing tedious arithmetic calculations. In the last few decades, our focus has shifted to developing problem-solving and thinking skills.
In this new curriculum, math concepts are taught in a three-stage learning process: concrete, pictorial and abstract, at the end of which, students will be fully equipped to solve multi-step mathematical problems.
For the purpose of this book, we will focus on the pictorial and abstract stage of the learning process, and demonstrate how solving and practising these logic puzzle-like word problems can help you sharpen your thinking skills. These learning processes that can be adapted anywhere.
Topics Covered in this book:
– Equal Concept
– Same One
– Same Total
– Same Difference
– External Unequal Change
– Guess and Check
– Working Backwards
– Gap and Difference
Before we cover all these topics, we take a closer look at the following:
1) What are problem sums?
2) How are problems sums different from usual math questions?
To further illustrate the thinking skills involved in solving these sums, we will:
1) list some common types of heuristic problem sums
2) suggest some possible ways to tackle these types of problem sums
3) present variations of some of these types of problem sums
4) provide practice questions with detailed solutions
Studying smarter is the preferred way for most parents and can be easily done.
