Mathematics (May – June 2015)

To support the concepts of Connection and Form, the students are going to learn the following things:

Fraction

  1. Compare and order proper fractions within one whole
  2. Add/subtract like fractions and related fractions within one whole
  3. Add/subtract proper fractions within one whole (up to 2 different denominators)
  4. Model improper fractions
  5. Express an improper fraction as mixed number, and vise versa
  6. Expressing an improper fraction or mixed number in its simplest form
  7. Addition and subtraction mixed number (contains like fractions or related fractions)
  8. Addition and subtraction mixed number (contains proper fractions)
  9. Find the fraction of a set (the answer is a whole number) by using models
  10. Find the fraction of a set for measurements (e.g. 10 minutes as a fraction of one hour)
  11. Solve problems involving fractions

Note: denominator is not exceed 12

Decimals

  1. Decimal notation and place value (tenths, hundredths, thousandths)
  2. Identify the values of the digits in a decimal
  3. Use number line to display decimals
  4. Compare and ordering decimal numbers
  5. Convert a decimal to a fraction
  6. Convert a fraction whose denominator is a factor of 10 or 100 to decimal
  7. Round off decimals to the nearest: a) whole number, b) 1 decimal place, c) 2 decimal places
  8. Add or subtract decimal numbers (up to 2 decimal places)
  9. Perform multiplication of decimals by 1-digit whole number (check reasonableness of answers)
  10. Perform division of a whole number by a whole number with answer in decimal form
  11. Perform division of decimals by 1-digit whole number (check reasonableness of answers)
  12. Solving word problems involving decimals in real life situations
  13. Round off

Probability (Numerical Notation)

  • Doing simple experiment (ex. with coin or dice) and find out the outcomes
  • Listing all possibility outcomes from the experiment by using tree diagram, table or systematically ordered pair
  • Express the probability of an event using simple fractions
  • Compare the probability of two or more events using least likely, less likely, more likely, and most likely.
