# Primary 3 Mathematics

Students have completed their foundation years in Primary 1 and 2. Primary 3 marks the beginning of their bridging 2-year for upper primary. They will start to solve more advanced word problems.

â€‹

There will be three main focuses in the lessons:

â€‹

Concepts Empowerment

â€‹

• Students will be empowered in their various Mathematical concepts, such as:

• Whole Numbers – Addition and Subtraction and their related Word Problems

• Multiplication and Division – with and without regrouping

• Solving of Word Problem involving the 4 operations.

• Money

• Length, Mass and Volume

• Bar Graph

• Fractions

• Time

• Angles

• Parallel and Perpendicular lines

• Area and Perimeter

â€‹â€‹

• Students transit from the foundational concepts in some of the topics.

• Students get to learn certain new topics, like Area and Perimeter, Parallel and Perpendicular lines, Angles and Bar Graphs.

• Students get to explore certain heuristic skill in problem solving, with much emphasis on Model Drawing, Making a Supposition, Guess and Check.

Thinking processes

â€‹

• Students will learn the 5 ‘What’s’ in problem solving.

• Students develop critical thinking skills with the help of the 5 ‘What’s’ and applying them to solve various kinds of problem sums.

• Students will practise using the steps of the 5 ‘What’s’ and internalise the strategy.

• Students will learn a set of “How to check” techniques for their derived answers. This will level up their understanding of the concepts taught in that topic.

Metacognition

â€‹

• Students will learn through the process of learning.

• Students will think about why they chose a particular approach to solve the problem by questioning their thought processes.

• Students will apply such skill when they are required to pose workable problems sums based on the concepts taught in class.
