PSLE Math Tuition: How Math Heuristics and Problem Sums Can Help Your Child Succeed in 2023 and 2024

Are you a 40-60 year old mother/ father with a child taking PSLE in 2023 or 2024? Are you worried about your child’s performance in Math? Math can be a challenging subject, but with the right strategies and resources, your child can succeed. In this article, we will explore how Math heuristics and problem sums can help your child excel in PSLE Math.

PSLE in the past

Back in those days, heuristics were not yet a thing, and math problem sums were simply math presented in word problems. However, times have changed, and Mr. Teng, who is also a parent in his 40s, understands the challenges you face.

What are Math Heuristics?

Math heuristics are problem-solving strategies that can help your child solve Math problems more efficiently and effectively. These heuristics are designed to help your child understand the problem, identify the relevant information, and choose an appropriate method to solve the problem. By using heuristics, your child can approach Math problems with confidence and accuracy.

Some common Math heuristics include:

repeated identity

two scenarios

total unchange

advanced remainder concept

units and parts

difference unchange

By teaching your child these heuristics and encouraging them to use them when solving Math problems, you can help them develop problem-solving skills that will serve them well throughout their P5 and P6.

What are Problem Sums?

Problem sums are Math problems that require your child to apply their Math skills to real-world situations. These problems often involve multiple steps and require your child to think critically and creatively. Problem sums can be challenging, but they are also an opportunity for your child to apply their Math skills in a meaningful way.

To help your child succeed in problem sums, encourage them to use Math heuristics and to break down the problem into smaller, more manageable steps. By teaching your child to approach problem sums systematically and logically, you can help them develop the skills they need to solve complex Math problems.
