Now we know that understanding of Mathematics questions is more important than the tools or methods, let’s look at different models that we can draw to help us in solving Mathematics questions.

1. Taking the example from Let’s Learn Mathematics (Primary Level) — Model Method 1, the model is simple yet powerful. It can be used to find the total (addition) or the difference (subtraction) of the same item.

Example (a): Jane had S$ 5. Her father gave her S$ 10 as pocket-money. How much money does she have now?

5 + 10 = 15

Now she has S$ 15.

Model for example 1(a)

Example (b): Jenny has 10 stamps, Kenny has 8 stamps and Lenny has 15 stamps. How many stamps do they have altogether?

10 + 8 + 15 = 33

They have 33 stamps altogether.

Model for example 1(b)

Example (c): Jenny had 12 erasers. She gave 2 erasers to Lenny. How many erasers does she have now?

12 – 2 = 10

She has 10 erasers now.

Model for example 1(c)

To be continued in Let’s Learn Mathematics (Primary Level) — Model Method 3.
