Maths Tips

PRIMARY MATHS HACKS

 

Watch out for these tricky elements that can appear in your child’s Maths questions! Take extra care not to fall into these traps.

 

MATHS HACK #1

John had 12 lollipops. He shared them with 3 friends. How many lollipops does each person have?

Key word: Share (so John is included)

Incorrect: 12 ÷ 3 = 4

Correct: 12 ÷ 4 = 3

 

 

 

MATHS HACK #2

The total age of John and Ken is 18 years. What is the total age of John and Ken 5 years later?

Correct: 18 + 5  + 5  = 28

Key point: Add the number of years twice because there are 2 people. Add 3 times if there are 3 people.

 

 

 

MATHS HACK #3

The distance between two trees is 8m. 5 trees are arranged in a straight line along the road. What is the distance between the first tree and the last tree?

Key point: Use your hand to identify the number of gaps between trees. The number of gaps in always 1 less than the number of points.

Correct: 4 gaps x 8m = 32m
