Facebook Live Coaching #35 – Number x Value = Total Value
[Total Value = Number x Value] questions are typically 4-5 marks questions in the P4 & P5 Maths exam. Many child find these questions confusing because most are unable to apply this same concept to solve different question types!
Your child may know how to solve a question in its particular context.
𝗟𝗶𝗻𝗱𝗲𝗻 𝗽𝗮𝗶𝗱 𝗮 𝘁𝗼𝘁𝗮𝗹 𝗼𝗳 $𝟴𝟭 𝗳𝗼𝗿 𝟴 𝗽𝗮𝗶𝗿 𝗼𝗳 𝗽𝗮𝗻𝘁𝘀 𝗮𝗻𝗱 𝟯 𝗰𝗮𝗽𝘀. 𝗘𝗮𝗰𝗵 𝗽𝗮𝗶𝗿 𝗼𝗳 𝗽𝗮𝗻𝘁𝘀 𝗰𝗼𝘀𝘁 𝘁𝗵𝗿𝗶𝗰𝗲 𝗮𝘀 𝗺𝘂𝗰𝗵 𝗮𝘀 𝗮 𝗰𝗮𝗽. 𝗛𝗼𝘄 𝗺𝘂𝗰𝗵 𝗱𝗶𝗱 𝗲𝗮𝗰𝗵 𝗰𝗮𝗽 𝗰𝗼𝘀𝘁?
But when the question is being paraphrase to the following:
𝗔 𝗳𝗿𝘂𝗶𝘁-𝘀𝘁𝗮𝗹𝗹 𝗼𝘄𝗻𝗲𝗿 𝘀𝗽𝗲𝗻𝘁 $𝟮𝟬 𝗼𝗻 𝗮𝗽𝗽𝗹𝗲𝘀 𝗮𝗻𝗱 $𝟳𝟱 𝗼𝗻 𝗼𝗿𝗮𝗻𝗴𝗲𝘀. 𝗛𝗲 𝗯𝗼𝘂𝗴𝗵𝘁 1/3 𝗮𝘀 𝗺𝗮𝗻𝘆 𝗮𝗽𝗽𝗹𝗲𝘀 𝗮𝘀 𝗼𝗿𝗮𝗻𝗴𝗲𝘀. 𝗘𝗮𝗰𝗵 𝗼𝗿𝗮𝗻𝗴𝗲 𝗰𝗼𝘀𝘁 $𝟬.𝟮𝟬 𝗺𝗼𝗿𝗲 𝘁𝗵𝗮𝗻 𝗲𝗮𝗰𝗵 𝗮𝗽𝗽𝗹𝗲. 𝗛𝗼𝘄 𝗺𝗮𝗻𝘆 𝗮𝗽𝗽𝗹𝗲𝘀 𝗮𝗻𝗱 𝗵𝗼𝘄 𝗺𝗮𝗻𝘆 𝗼𝗿𝗮𝗻𝗴𝗲𝘀 𝗱𝗶𝗱 𝗵𝗲 𝗯𝘂𝘆?
Hence, while your child know how to answer first question, he or she wouldn’t be able to answer another question presented in a different scenario, even if both questions involve the same concept!
