Mathematics Primary 6

With our 6th grade math tutoring, your child will learn:

Fractions

Four operations
Include division of a whole number/proper fraction by a proper fraction without using calculators.

Percentage

  • finding the whole given a part and the percentage,
  • finding percentage increase/decrease,
  • solving word problems involving percentage.

Ratio

  • expressing one quantity as a fraction of another, given their ratio, and vice versa,
  • finding how many times one quantity is as large as another, given their ratio, and vice versa,
  • expressing one quantity as a fraction of another given the two quantities,
  • finding the whole/ one part when a whole is divided into parts in a given ratio,
  • solving word problems involving 2 pairs of ratios.

Distance, time and speed

Concepts of speed and average speed, relationship between distance, time and speed

*Distance = Speed × Time,
*Speed = Distance ÷ Time,
*Time = Distance ÷ Speed,

Measurement

Area and circumference of circle

* use of formulae to calculate the area and circumference of a circle,finding the area and perimeter of
*semicircle (half circle)
*quarter circle
* solving word problems involving area and perimeter.

Area and perimeter of composite figure
* finding the area and perimeter of a figure made up of some of the following shapes: square, rectangle, triangle, semicircle and quarter circle.

Volume of cube and cuboid

  • finding one dimension of a cuboid given its volume and the other dimensions,
  • finding the length of one edge of a cube given its volume,
  • finding the height of a cuboid given its volume and base area,
  • finding the area of a face of a cuboid given its volume and one dimension,
  • use of the symbols √ and ∛,
  • solving word problems involving volume of a cube/ cuboid.

Geometry

Geometrical figures

  • Include finding unknown angles in geometrical figures involving square, rectangle, parallelogram, rhombus, trapezium and triangle.

Nets

  • 2-D representation of cube, cuboid, cone, cylinder, prism and pyramid,
  • identifying nets of the following solids
  • *cube,
  • *cuboid, *prism,
  • *pyramid,
  • identifying the solid which can be formed by a given net, making 3-D solids from given nets.

Data Analysis

Pie charts

  • reading and interpreting pie charts,
  • solving 1-step problems using information presented in pie charts.

Algebra

Algebraic expressions in one variable

  • representation of an unknown number using a letter,
  • simple algebraic expressions such as

y ± 2, 6 ± y
y+y
3y
y / 2
(3±y) / 5

  • interpreting

3y as y+y+y or 3 * y

y/2 as y ÷ 2 or 1/2 * y

(3±y) / 5 as (3±y) ÷ 5 or 1/5 × (3±y)

  • simplification of algebraic expressions,
  • evaluation of simple algebraic expressions by substitution, solving word problems involving algebraic expressions.
