16/3

Revise fractions

  • compare and order fractions whose denominators are all multiples of the same number
  • identify, name and write equivalent fractions of a given fraction, represented visually, including tenths and hundredths
  • recognise and use thousandths and relate them to tenths, hundredths and decimal equivalents
  • read and write decimal numbers as fractions [for example, 0.71 = 71/100]
  • read, write, order and compare numbers with up to three decimal places
  • recognise mixed numbers and improper fractions and convert from one form to the other and write mathematical statements > 1 as a mixed number [for example, 2/5 + 4/5 = 6/5 = 1 1/5]
  • add and subtract fractions with the same denominator and denominators that are multiples of the same number
  • multiply proper fractions and mixed numbers by whole numbers, supported by materials and diagrams
  • solve problems which require knowing percentage and decimal equivalents of 1/2, 1/4, 1/5, 2/5, 4/5 and those fractions with a denominator of a multiple of 10 or 25

solve problems involving multiplication and division, including scaling by simple fractions and problems involving simple rates
