Home » Primary 4 Scheme of Work » Primary 4 Mathematics Scheme of Work
The Primary 4 Mathematics covers four basic aspects which are addition, subtraction, multiplication and division using a higher figure of 11000. The pupils will practice whole numbers up to a thousand, rounding large digits to any place, multiplication of one by 4 digits and 2 by 2 digits, remainders, factors and prime factors etc.
The topics covered in this class are: Whole numbers, Roman numerals, multiplication, division, lowest common multiple, highest common multiple, fraction, decimal fraction, multiplication of decimals, square, estimation, length, weight, time, capacity, plane shapes etc. These topics should be taught using higher numbers of 11000.
