Maths — No Problem! is a comprehensive series that adopts a spiral design with carefully built-up mathematical concepts and processes adapted from the maths mastery approaches used in Singapore. The Concrete-Pictorial-Abstract (C-P-A) approach forms an integral part of the learning process through the materials developed for this series.
Maths — No Problem! incorporates the use of concrete aids and manipulatives, problem-solving and group work.
In this chapter, pupils will be looking at numbers and their place value to 1 000 000. The chapter begins reviewing how to read and write numbers to 100 000, quickly moving onto numbers to 1 000 000. Time is spent using concrete materials to represent numbers to 1 000 000, including number discs and place-value charts. Pupils then compare numbers to 1 000 000 using their knowledge of place value in addition to bar model supports to assist them. Pupils complete the unit by making number patterns and rounding numbers to the nearest 10, 1000, 10 000 and 100 000.
