The Singapore Mathematics Model Drawing Method is a mathematical concept
that is used to teach problem-solving skills among primary school students. It is great
for children who are visual learners as it gives them a better understanding of the
questions they face in mathematics examinations. Using blocks to represent numbers
is more visually appealing to them than algebra, which uses alphabets instead. By
visualising the question, children will be able to see the logic and the relationships
between different objects.
The questions in this book are designed to enable progressive learning. There are step-
by-step solutions to ensure students master the skill of model drawing in various core
topics of the primary school mathematics syllabus such as whole numbers, fractions,
decimals, ratio, average, percentage, speed, length, money, mass and volume.
The following model drawing concepts will be acquired by students who have
conscientiously completed this book.
