Hi everyone, I am Jimmy Ling, a Mathematics teacher in Singapore with more than 10 years of teaching experience. When I am teaching Primary School students, I realised that many of them have difficulties in solving problem sums.
There are 8 methods which you must know in order to do well for your Mathematics exams. You must learn to first UNDERSTAND the question, then IDENTIFY the method to solve the question, followed by APPLY the method correctly.
What is this course about?
 Learn the 8 Must Know Methods for Primary School Mathematics Problem Sums
 Recognise the correct method to use when solving problem sums
 Learn how to check your answers
 Learn how to avoid common mistakes
 Unlimited lifetime access to this course, (rewind and rewatch it anytime you want)
 Unlimited support from me (Ask me any Math problem sums and I will be glad to help you)
Structure of the course
 28 Videos with examples to explain the 8 methods
 After each method, worksheets with questions which use the same method are given
How to learn from this course?
 I will teach the 8 methods using videos with examples
 Watch the videos, rewind and watch again and make sure you understand the 8 methods
 After each method, practice the worksheet given to reinforce your understanding
 Ask whenever you need help
Who should attend this course?

 Learn anywhere, and anytime you want!
I will appreciate any reviews and feedback!
I created this course initially for Singapore Primary level students. Singapore students are well know for producing top standards in Mathematics, so I will like to share the methods taught in Singapore to students over the world. I think it will be very useful for students in their Elementary level.
In order to help me improve my future Mathematics course, can you tell me which country you are from and how this methods can apply to your Mathematics in your country?
I will also appreciate if you can write a review for my course and rate it.

Section 3: Constant Part, Constant Total, Constant Difference  
Lecture 8  02:15  
In this video, you will learn what type of problem sums will require this method. 

Lecture 9  03:27  
In some problem sums, one of the parts remain constant after some changes. You will learn how to use it to solve problem sums. 

Lecture 10  03:18  
For questions involving internal transfer, the total remain constant. You will learn how to use this concept to solve problem sums. 

Lecture 11  02:56  
When both sides of the ratioo increase or decrease by the SAME amount, the difference remains the same. You will learn what type of question will use this concept.
