Home » Primary 6 Scheme of Work » Primary 6 Mathematics Scheme of Work
Mathematics for Primary 6 builds upon the concepts learnt from the previous classes. The pupils will solidify their understanding of some mathematical concepts like number systems, operations (addition, subtraction, multiplication, division), fractions, decimal percentages, etc.
At this stage, the pupils would have achieved fluency and accuracy in the calculation to a high extent, and they will be expected to practice them through various methods and exercises. The scheme introduces concepts that encourage logical thinking with concepts like geometry, weight, shapes, angles etc.
Some of the topics covered in this class include; Whole numbers, addition and subtraction, multiplication and division of numbers, LCM & HCF, fraction and decimals, order of basic operation, scale drawing, ratio and proportion, percentage, indices, length and Pythagoras, weight, angles, volume and capacity etc.
