Hi,
Maths problem sums are created based on concepts. May I know what are the concepts covered in primary maths problem sums?
I know the following:
1)Partwhole
2)Comparison
3)Difference is constant
4)Difference concept
5)Total is constant
I learned the above from parents' posting in the maths Q&A threads.
Are there others?
Thank you.

Hey SAHM_TAN, what you have listed is probably quite complete for Primary 3

From another thread, I was linked to the following website and came to know the following:

Secrets to Solving the 11 Types of Problem Sums
1. Remainder Concept
2. Repeated Identity Concept
3. Equal Concept
4. External Transfer (unchanged quantity)
5. Internal Transfer
6. External Transfer (same difference)
7. External Transfer (changed quantity)
8. Pattern Concept
9. Partwhole Concept (Proportions)
10. Simultaneous Concept
11. Gap Concept / Difference Concept

I personally feel Maths is more of structural thinking than conceptual thinking.
1. What is the question?
2. What information is given?
3. What formula to use?
4. What steps should be taken?
