Bar Model Method as an essential part in Mathematics Education
To promote and support the use of Bar Model Method
This website aims to promote the bar modelling approach to challenging word questions in Singapore PSLE (Primary School Leaving Examination) Math papers as well as some challenging problems beyond PSLE level.
For PSLE Math, there are two mayor types of problems :
1. Distributive Problems : A recent write-up Bar Model Method For A Challenging 2021 PSLE Question shows a bar modelling solution to a Coins Distribution Question and noted that the question is a variant of two past examination papers in 2015 and 2016.
2. Ratio Problems : In the write-up BAR MODEL METHOD for PSLE MATH, we focus on showing the Ratio Approach to ratio and fraction questions with variants of four past year questions in 2019 and 2020.
Furthermore, We highlighted some challenging questions in the write-up : Bar Model Approach To PSLE-2019 Questions,
