### Lesson 1 to 10

1
P5 Lesson 1

This week (Lesson 1), we will begin our 1st lesson for the new academic year.

This will be a challenging year. Similar concepts the children learned in P4 will be designed to be more challenging and indirect. Also, new heavy topics will be introduced to the children this year, namely Ratio and Percentage. Given the upcoming challenges, we will be "pushing" the students harder and a little earlier than at other levels. We seek your support and understanding.

This week's lesson will only focus on 2 concepts instead of the usual 4 concepts per lesson.

• Grouping given total
• Grouping given the difference

These two concepts are the most commonly tested in P5 and P6. It can be tested on many topics and incorporated with other concepts. Thus we would like our students to have a strong grasp of these two concepts early in the year.

Calculators:

Please purchase a scientific calculator for your children and allow them to bring it to class next week.

2
P5 Lesson 2

This week (Lesson 2), we will continue with Whole Numbers and Decimals.

In this lesson, we will cover the concepts

1. Age
2. Factors and multiples
3. Shortage and Surplus

"These three concepts were taught in P4 but will undoubtedly be tested again in P5 WA and SA.

"Shortage and surplus" - Schools teach with either the listing method** or the model method. We will introduce the model method to solve "Shortage and surplus" questions. Whilst the model method is more difficult to grasp, it involves fewer steps, minimising the risk of careless computational mistakes.

**The listing method had been taught in Primary 4.

3
P5 Lesson 3

This week (Lesson 3), we will continue with Whole Numbers and Decimals 3.

In this lesson, we will cover Difference concepts and Simultaneous concepts.

The "Difference concept "for P5 will be slightly more complicated than in P4.

"Simultaneous concept" is arithmetic math. It is solving 2 unknowns with 2 number statements. This is a useful skill to acquire early in the year as it can be applied to solve subsequent problem sums.

4
P5 Lesson 4
2 hours

This week (Lesson 4), we will continue with Whole Numbers and Decimals 4.

This lesson will cover Quantity Internal transfer and Quantity External Transfer. This lesson's important takeaway is knowing how to use models to visualise quantity transfer.

These two concepts are commonly tested heuristic questions in P5 and P6.

This week is the last lesson for 2022. We will like to take this opportunity to wish all parents and students a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

5
P5 Lesson 5

This week (Lesson 5), we will continue with Fraction 1.

This lesson will focus on the multiplication and division of fractions.

The problem sum concepts we will cover this week will be

1. Fractions as values. E.g. John gave 3/4 kg of his cake to Peter.
2. Fractions as units. E.g. John gave 3/4 of his cake to Peter.

Mistakenly applying the concept of fractions as units or values is a common error among P5 students.

6
P5 Lesson 6

This week's lesson (Lesson 6) will be focused on Fraction 2. Specifically, we will introduce the concept of The Remainder Theory and how to apply it through model drawing. While these problems can also be solved using the Branching Methods, we have chosen to teach the Model Methods as they are more consistent with the methods typically used in schools and what your children learned in Primary 4.

7
P5 Lesson 7
8
P5 Lesson 8

Next week, in Lesson 8, we will focus on the topic of Fractions, specifically delving deeper into the concept of Remainder Theory. Next week's lesson involves solving problem sums where the remainder is unknown. We have observed that these types of questions are frequently tested in school exams. In order to master this concept, it is crucial that students become proficient in using model drawing techniques related to Remainder Theory.

To support their learning, we recommend that students practice by redoing the worksheets from Lessons 7 and 8.

9
P5 Lesson 9

This week (lesson 9) and the next, we will revise all the taught concepts. In this revision lesson, we will focus on

1. Difference concept
2. Shortage and surplus
3. Quantity external/internal transfer
4. Fractions
5. Remainder theory

*CALCULATORS*:

1. Please remind your children to bring their calculators. Many of the questions involve huge numbers that make solving the questions unnecessarily stressful without a calculator.

2. Do not substitute the calculator with a phone.

10
P5 Lesson 10

This week (Lesson 10), we will continue to revise the concepts taught in previous lessons. The concepts we will cover are as follows:

> How to use differences to solve problem sums

> Grouping concept

> Problem sums involving intervals

> Area and perimeter

> Equivalent proportion

> Whole numbers

### Lesson 11 to 20

1
P5 Lesson 11

This week, students will be introduced to the topic of Triangles.

While some schools may cover this topic later in the year, based on previous experience, most schools will cover it in the first half of the academic year.

From our observation, most students can easily find the area of triangles, even for complex problems. However, they sometimes need help identifying the correct height and base. To help improve this, we will provide additional exposure and practice through triangle-related questions.

*All students must attend this lesson at the centre*.

2
P5 Lesson 12

We will continue our exploration of the Area of Triangles, focusing on four common ways these types of questions can be tested. These include

1. Finding the area involving folding,
2. Finding the area given the value of units, base or height,
3. Finding the area given the value of units in the perimeter, and
4. Finding the area of triangles inside a grid.

To do well in this topic, it is essential to have broad exposure to different forms of Area of Triangles questions. In subsequent lessons, we will expose the children to more questions to help them develop a deeper understanding of the concept.

3
P5 Lesson 13
4
P5 Lesson 14

This week (Lesson 14), we will be continuing with Ratio Lesson 2

In this lesson, we will focus on identifying Common Bases in Ratios. Identifying a common base is central to solving Ratio questions.

5
P5 Lesson 15

This week (Lesson 15), we will be introducing Ratio Lesson 3

The students will be learning to solve Fraction problem sums using Ratio methods.

Using Ratio methods to solve fractions problem sums will minimise the need to draw complex models. It is beneficial for children who dislike drawing models.

6
P5 Lesson 16

This week (Lesson 16), we will continue with Ratio lesson 4

In this lesson, we will cover three basic ratio heuristic concepts. These three concepts will form the basic building blocks of more complex ratio problem sums.

They are:

1. Group unchanged.

2. Total unchanged.

3. Difference unchanged.

7
P5 Lesson 27

This week (Lesson 27), we will be going back to Ratio, lesson 5.

This lesson is relatively more challenging and we expect most of the students to struggle a little. Instead of the regular 4 concepts, we will focus on only 3 concepts this week. The concepts we will be covering will also involve solving units and parts.

1. Unchanged total with a presumption
2. All changed without presumption
3. Quantity and value with Difference Concept

8
P5 Lesson 28

This lesson will be our last lesson on Ratio. In this lesson, we will cover higher-order Ratio concepts that is not so commonly tested in P5. We expect this lesson to be challenging for most students.

9
P5 Lesson 29

This week (Lesson 29), we will begin a new Topic, "Percentage."

In this lesson, we will cover the basics of Percentages.

> Express part of a whole as a percentage.

> Convert between fractions, decimals and percentages.

> Finding the percentage of a quantity.

> Using the unitary method

> Finding percentage increase/decrease

Next week, we will be covering discount/GST/interest. This is where parents can help. Parents can take this opportunity to explain the discounts they receive. How do merchants use discounts to attract customers? (e.g 50% discount = buy 1 get 1 free) What is GST? How does fixed deposit work?

10
P5 Lesson 30

This week (Lesson 30), we will continue with “Percentage 2”

We will also cover
