What is covered in this lesson?

In this lesson, we will cover 3 concepts

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

“Age” and “Factors and multiples”, are concepts learned in P4 but will certainly be tested again in P5 CA1 and SA1.

“Shortage and surplus” is a relatively more difficult concept to grasp. Some schools teach using the listing method. We will be introducing the model method to solve “Shortage and surplus” questions. The model method will involve fewer steps, which will minimise the risk of careless computational mistakes.
