Maths No Problem!
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.

Chapter 3 - Multiplication and Division
In this chapter, pupils will learn how to multiply and divide by 6, 7, 9, 11 and 12. They will begin to understand mathematical vocabulary such as 'quotient' in relation to division. They will learn how to calculate multiplication equations using the multiplication facts that they know. They will understand the difference between sharing and grouping and they will understand the commutative law in multiplication. They will also solve problems involving multiplication and division.
Chapter 2 - Addition and Subtraction within 10,000
In this chapter pupils will be taught to add and subtract with numbers up to 10,000. They will use the column method for addition and subtraction and they will also learn mental methods for addition and subtraction. Pupils will be encouraged to think about when is the most appropriate time to use each method. They will use the methods taught to solve word problems: visualising the problems using the bar model.
Chapter 1 - Numbers to 10,000
In this chapter, pupils will learn to count in multiples of 25, 100 and 1000 in order to count larger numbers comprehensively. They will learn about the relative size of numbers and complete number sequences within 10 000. Pupils will learn about place value to 4 digits and they will link numbers in numerals and in words. They will compare numbers using language such as 'greater', 'smaller', 'less' and 'more', using the mathematical symbols <, > and =. They will use their knowledge of number and place value to help complete number patterns. They will also learn about rounding numbers to the nearest 1000, 100 and 10; children will apply this knowledge to approximate, total and find the difference.
