What is covered in this lesson?

In this lesson, we continue with External transfer concept. We will also be introducing the “Internal transfer” concept. Of the 2, “Internal transfer” is much more difficult. Partly because the model drawing required for “internal transfer” is not easy, especially when students attempt to draw the transfer in a single model.

In Matrix Math, we will teach students to draw internal transfer questions in 2 separate models. This method help students analyse better and solve such questions a lot easier.

  • External transfer, unchanged difference
  • Internal transfer, given total
