The third facebook live coaching session will be conducted on 17 August on the application of Unit Transfer Method, focusing on the scenario, “Single Unchanged Quantities” . Thank You for the overwhelming response from the groups!

Examples covered in the coaching session include:

After Ingrid bought 8 more fishes from the pet shop,

Ian had 1/2 as many fishes as Heather.

How many fishes did both girls have in the end?

Example 2:

If she gives 15 red beads away,

she will have the same number of purple beads and red beads.

How many purple beads does she have?

There were twice as many girls as boys in the school library.

After 10 boys left the school library,
