Techniques in Solving Higher-Order Thinking Word Problems Teacher's Notes


This is a resource book for teachers, parents and Primary 6 students who are interested in learning how to manage and solve higher-order thinking word problems. These problems usually require students to compare quantities, work with differences, transfer units from one item to another, match units, regroup units and/or work with common multiples in order to successfully solve them.

In this respect, problem-solving strategies such as model-drawing, diagramming, tabling and listing are important tools to help organise the thinking process. This book will be an indispensable guide in learning the problem-solving strategies and techniques.

What this book offers:

  • Fully worked step-by-step solutions covering many of the typical challenging word problems that students tend to have difficulties with in Whole Numbers, Fractions, Percentage, Speed and Rate-Volume problems.
  • Alternative solutions are presented whenever applicable.
  • Tackles word problems concerning agerelated concepts, excess-shortage concepts, make-a-supposition strategy, ratio/faction/ percent transfer (Before-After) concepts and two-vehicle type of speed problems.
  • Provides a narrative element to explain the
    steps at appropriate junctures.
