Bar Model Approach for Averages of Numbers in Statistics
Ho Soo Thong
This article illustrates the use of mathematical implications of the Arithmetic Distributive Law for solving problems involving averages at Primary School Level.

Distributive Law for Indeterminate Problems
Ho Soo Thong
This article extends the use of Arithmetic Distributive Law in the Bar Model Method to indeterminate distributive problems.

A Direct Counting Approach For Fractions in PSLE Math
Ho Soo Thong
This article shows how fractions evolved from the partwhole concept and how a bar modelling approach with Euclidean Algorithm can be used to obtain fractions in a counting approach. Some examples similar to recent PSLE questions will be used to illustrate this approach

Distributive Law for Excess and Shortage Problems in PSLE Math
Ho Soo Thong
This article illustrates the use of Arithmetic Distributive Law as essential mathematics for problem solving at primary school level. It begins with a bar modelling approach to relate the mathematical situations in some word problems to the Distributive bLaw. A further step forward is to use the similar approach to complex Excess and Shortage problems.
