P5 Math Free Test Papers

There is a great jump in difficulty from P4 Math to P5 Math problem sums. It is not uncommon to see huge drop in marks for P5 students.

As P5 Math problem sums gets harder, it is essential for your child to understand concepts.

Your child also needs to spot keywords and link them to the right concept.

You can learn the strategy and concepts in our free PSLE Math Mind-Maps below.

P5 Math Free Test Papers

Below is a list of test papers for your child to practice. The test papers are carefully sorted into concepts.

Make sure your child is able to understand the concept first. Practising papers without understanding will only cause your child to memorise steps and will not achieve any results.

Keep in mind that there are more than one way to solve the questions. For P5 Math chapters like Whole Numbers and Fractions, we will prefer and recommend the Model Drawing Method to solve them.

1. Whole Numbers

Math Concepts which are frequently tested in P5 Math Whole Numbers are “More Than, Less Than, Equal Stage and Transfer”.

Model drawing will be a great tool to solve this type of questions as it gives us a clear picture of the relationship of the items.

It also helps us understand the “Before and After” situations.

P5 Math Whole Numbers – More Than, Less Than

P5 Math Whole Numbers – Equal Stage

P5 Math Whole Numbers – Transfer with Solutions

2. Fractions

Math Concepts which are frequently tested in P5 Math Fractions are “Remainder, Part-Whole Concept and Working Backwards”.

When tackling problem sums on Fractions, always keep in mind the reference which the fraction is based on.

“3/5 of the total” is not the same as “3/5 of the remainder”.

“1/2 of Ali” is not the same as “1/2 of Bala” etc.

We will recommend the Model Drawing method to tackle these type of questions.

Students can also use the Branching method instead if they are competent in it.

P5 Math Fractions – Remainder Concept

P5 Math Fractions – Part Whole Concept

P5 Math Fractions – Working Backwards Concept

3. Ratio

Math Concepts which are frequently tested in P5 Math Ratio are “Constant Part, Constant Total and Constant Difference”.

Learn to use Ratio or the unitary method to solve these type of questions.

Using Model Drawing maybe too time confusing and inefficient instead.

Understand the importance of keywords and how they link to the right concept.

For example, “Age” is always linked to “Constant Difference” and “Transfer” is always linked to “Constant Total”.

Final Encouragement

Practice is essential in Math. But that doesn’t mean your child should keep on drilling exam papers. Practice with understanding is even more crucial.

Long hours of practice without proper understanding will cause your child’s motivation to drop.

Children who did not improve despite putting in lots of practice will start to develop the self-limiting belief that they are bad in Math.

Keep in mind that these concepts are only the tip of the ice berg. While they are good for foundation, there are still a lot more concepts to cover.

Encourage your child and looking forward to guide your child along this crucial learning journey.
