PSLE Mathematics #1 | By the end of Primary 6, students must be able to solve 2-mark problems like this ..
Kemar is 1.93 m and is 2 cm shorter than Usain. How tall is Usain? |
Students who are struggling with Maths should focus on becoming competent in basic tasks such as this one. Often you get both marks for a correct answer but an incorrect answer with a correct method such as 193+2 or 1.93+0.02. Pity students who were told look for keywords, shorter means subtract! Look out for more PSLE guidance as the national examination draws near.
Today's problem is inspired by the on-going Commonwealth Games.
