Examination papers from primary schools were analysed
and challenging problems that appeared frequently were noted.
These problems are usually the killer problems found in examination papers.
They are used frequently in examinations because of one or
more of the following reasons:
(1) test understanding of important concepts learnt,
(2) appeared in PSLE examination papers before,
(3) challenging, and
Our detailed analysis revealed that there are about 35 such types of problems.
This book is written to include 18 such types of
problems and to provide easy-to-understand simple
methods of solving these problems.
Any child who works through this book carefully will
acquire confidence in solving these problems and
will no longer be stumped by these problems in examinations.
This book is written in colour and with most of the
problems written with interesting examples,
children will find that solving these challenging
problems is no longer scary but actually can be fun and interesting.
