Young Problem Solvers' Series

Mastering Topical Problem Sums with the Model Method

For children aged 8 to 10 years old

Many students find maths challenging and dull. A fresh approach can alleviate that. Elevate your child’s problem solving skills with the Singapore Model Method, a powerful technique that helps students visualise, understand and solve complex word problems systematically. Your child will learn to approach maths problems in a fun yet effective way in our 5-week programme as they draw models to solve word problems across 5 topics – Length, Volume, Mass, Fractions and Whole Numbers. Build a strong maths learning foundation and develop your child’s problem-solving skills with the right techniques starting with the Model Method.

This programme is available only to students studying outside of Singapore. Class timings are in SG/MY time zone. For students in Singapore, visit The Learning Lab Singapore.

Session 2

Students will learn how to:
  • Convert volumes from millilitres to litres and litres to millilitres
  • Solve word problems involving volume using the four operations
  • Solve word problems involving internal transfer by drawing models

Session 3

Students will learn how to:
  • Convert masses from grams to kilograms and kilograms to grams
  • Solve word problems involving mass using the four operations
  • Solve word problems involving equal stage by drawing models

Session 4

Students will learn how to:
  • Identify the numerator and the denominator in a fraction
  • Compare fractions of the same numerator or denominator by drawing models
  • Solve word problems involving part-whole relationship by drawing models

Session 5
