This optional workbook has word problems only. The problems are topically arranged, with the topics following the same sequence as Primary Mathematics 5A and 5B. Each topic starts with three worked examples, followed by practice problems and then challenge problems. Although the computation skills needed to solve the problems are at the same level as the corresponding Primary Mathematics books, the problem solving techniques necessary in the challenge section are sometimes more advanced, with the problems requiring more steps to solve. It is a good source of extra word problems that can be discussed in a classroom setting or used as enrichment problems for more capable students. Answers are in the back of the book.
