Primary 4 Syllabus

Aligned with the latest 2021 Singapore MOE Math syllabus and endorsed by Education Alliance of Finland.
Hundreds of hours of learning content for all topics covered in P4 to get your child build a strong Math foundation!


In P4, your child will expand their problem-solving toolbox by learning heuristics, such as drawing diagrams and looking for patterns.

If your child’s foundation is weak, they will struggle. Soon, they dread doing their homework or going to class.

They are afraid that they can’t keep up.

With Practicle, they can!

First, our platform will use AI to personalise our questions to match your child’s current ability.

Then, over time, as your child improves, we’ll give them tougher questions.

Even if the class has moved on, they can continue to build their skills.

That’s the beauty of self-paced learning.

Our syllabus is 100% aligned with MOE and is certified by the Education Alliance of Finland (EAF) for educational quality and effectiveness.


Gamification to make learning engaging and rewarding
A.I. + Practicle system to personalise questions to your child’s ability
Learning reports for you to track and optimise your child’s education journey
