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.
(Please note that all our lessons are conducted in English.)

Model Method vs Algebra
Equip your child with an arsenal of problem-solving heuristics to become a strategic problem solver.
In this workshop, your child will learn how to use the Singapore model method to effectively break down word problems systematically, making even complex problems easy to solve.
Here’s what we will cover in our lessons.
- Convert lengths from centimetres to metres and metres to centimetres
- Solve word problems involving length using the four operations
- Solve word problems involving external transfer by drawing comparison models
- 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
- 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
- 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
Students will learn how to:
- Apply the techniques from Sessions 1 to 4 to solve more complex word problems
