• Tabulate systematically the information in a problem or puzzle; identify and record the steps or calculations needed to solve it, using symbols where appropriate; interpret solutions in the original context and check their accuracy
• Suggest, plan and develop lines of enquiry; collect, organise and represent information, interpret results and review methods; identify and answer related questions
• Represent and interpret sequences, patterns and relationships involving numbers and shapes; suggest and test hypotheses; construct and use simple expressions and formulae in words then symbols (e.g. the cost of c pens at 15 pence each is 15c pence)
• Explain reasoning and conclusions, using words, symbols or diagrams as appropriate
Using and applying mathematics
• Select and use standard metric units of measure and convert between units using decimals to two places (e.g. change 2.75 litres to 2750 ml, or vice versa)
Read and interpret scales on a range of measuring instruments, recognising that the measurement made is approximate and recording results to a required degree of accuracy; compare readings on different scales, e.g. when using different instruments
• Calculate the perimeter and area of rectilinear shapes; estimate the area of an irregular shape by counting squares
• Calculate mentally with integers and decimals: U.t ± U.t, TU × U, TU ÷ U, U.t × U, U.t ÷ U
• Use efficient written methods to add and subtract integers and decimals, to multiply and divide integers and decimals by a one-digit integer, and to multiply two-digit and three-digit integers by a two-digit integer
• Relate fractions to multiplication and division (e.g. 6 ÷ 2 = 12 of 6 = 6 × 12); express a quotient as a fraction or decimal (e.g. 67 ÷ 5 = 13.4 or 1325); find fractions and percentages of whole-number quantities (e.g. 58 of 96, 65% of £260)
• Use a calculator to solve problems involving multi-step calculations

• Describe and predict outcomes from data using the language of chance or likelihood
• Solve problems by collecting, selecting, processing, presenting and interpreting data, using ICT where appropriate; draw conclusions and identify further questions to ask
• Construct and interpret frequency tables, bar charts with grouped discrete data, and line graphs; interpret pie charts
• Describe and interpret results and solutions to problems using the mode, range, median and mean
• Find the difference between a positive and a negative integer, or two negative integers, in context
• Use decimal notation for tenths, hundredths and thousandths; partition, round and order decimals with up to three places, and position them on the number line
• Express a larger whole number as a fraction of a smaller one (e. g. recognise that 8 slices of a 5-slice pizza represents 85 or 1 35 pizzas); simplify fractions by cancelling common factors; order a set of fractions by converting them to fractions with a common denominator
• Express one quantity as a percentage of another (e.g. express £400 as a percentage of £1000); find equivalent percentages, decimals and fractions
• Solve simple problems involving direct proportion by scaling quantities up or down
• Describe, identify and visualise parallel and perpendicular edges or faces; use these properties to classify 2-D shapes and 3-D solids
• Make and draw shapes with increasing accuracy and apply knowledge of their properties
• Visualise and draw on grids of different types where a shape will be after reflection, after translations, or after rotation through 90° or 180° about its centre or one of its vertices
• Use coordinates in the first quadrant to draw, locate and complete shapes that meet given properties
• Estimate angles, and use a protractor to measure and draw them, on their own and in shapes; calculate angles in a triangle or around a point
