About Mathematics Scheme of Work for Primary 5
Primary 5 mathematics is designed to teach the pupils how to divide and multiply whole numbers with more than four digits, how to add, divide and subtract fraction, how to solve problems based on square and square root etc.
The mathematics for this class is divided into three sections; Numbers and Algebra, Measurements and Geometry, and Statistics. Some of the topics covered in these classes include; Whole numbers, Roman numerals, multiplication and division of whole numbers, prime numbers, fraction, ratios, addition and subtraction of fraction, square and square root, estimation, percentage, algebraic processes etc.
The educators should teach the pupils how to calculate using by breaking down the steps to the minimum, and by encouraging the pupils on how to use different strategies in solving mathematical problems.
