Heuristics in Primary Maths Syllabus

Heuristics is a specialised mathematical problem-solving concept. Mastering it facilitates efficiency in solving regular as well as challenging mathematical problems. The Ministry of Education in Singapore has incorporated 11 Problem-Solving Heuristics into all primary-level mathematical syllabus.

Applying Heuristics Effectively

Instead of containing the 11 Problem-Solving Heuristics neatly into specific chapters though, they have been integrated into the regular curriculum. This not only makes it difficult for students to pick up Heuristics skills, but can also make mathematics confusing for some students.

For us parents, it is difficult for us to put aside the regular-syllabus mathematical concepts we were brought up on to re-learn Heuristics, much less teach our own children this new concept.

This book specially designed for Primary 5 and 6 pupils taking Mathematics PSLE. It gives students the opportunity to see how heuristics work in the most recent Mathematics Examination Paper 2 as well as get in some practice.
