Addition, Subtraction, Multiplication and Division:

Sufficient evidence shows the ability to:

  • Multiply multi-digit numbers up to 4 digits by a two-digit whole number using the formal written method of long multiplication.
  • Divide numbers up to 4 digits by a two-digit whole number using the formal written method of long division, and interpret remainders as whole number remainders, fractions, or by rounding, as appropriate for the context.
  • Divide numbers up to 4 digits by a two-digit number using the formal written method of short division where appropriate, interpreting remainders according to the context.
  • Perform mental calculations, including with mixed operations and large numbers.
  • Identify common factors, common multiples and prime numbers.
  • Use their knowledge of the order of operations to carry out calculations involving the four operations.
  • Solve addition and subtraction multi-step problems in contexts, deciding which operations and methods to use and why.

Fractions:

Sufficient evidence shows the ability to:

  • Use common factors to simplify fractions; use common multiples to express fractions in the same denomination.
  • Compare and order fractions, including fractions > 1.
  • Add and subtract fractions with different denominators and mixed numbers, using the concept of equivalent fractions.
  • Multiply simple pairs of proper fractions, writing the answer in its simplest form. For example, 1/2 × 1/2 = 1/8.
  • Divide proper fractions by whole numbers. 1/3 ÷ 2= 1/6
  • Associate a fraction with division and calculate decimal fraction equivalents for example, 0.375 for a simple fraction e.g. 3/8.
  • Identify the value of each digit in numbers given to three decimal places and multiply and divide numbers by 10, 100 and 1000 giving answers up to three decimal places.
  • Multiply one-digit numbers with up to two decimal places by whole numbers.
  • Use written division methods in cases where the answer has up to two decimal places.
  • Solve problems which require answers to be rounded to specified degrees of accuracy.
  • Recall and use equivalences between simple fractions, decimals and percentages, including in different contexts.

Ratio and Proportion:

Sufficient evidence shows the ability to:

  • Solve problems involving the relative sizes of two quantities where missing values can be found by using integer multiplication and division facts.
  • Solve problems involving the calculation of percentages for example, of measures, and such as 15% of 360 and the use of percentages for comparison.
  • Solve problems involving similar shapes where the scale factor is known or can be found.
  • Solve problems involving unequal sharing and grouping using knowledge of fractions and multiples.
