What are the maths concepts for primary maths problem sums?

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)Part-whole
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

Re: What are the maths concepts for primary maths problem su

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?
