Find one half, one quarter and three quarters of shapes and sets of objects.
Use diagrams to identify equivalent fractions (e.g. 6/8 and 3/4, or 7/10 and 70/100); interpret mixed numbers and position them on a number line (e.g. 3 1/2) simplify fractions by cancelling common factors.
Understand and use decimal notation for tenths and hundredths in context [for example, order amounts of money, round a sum of money to the nearest pound, convert a length such as 1.36 metres to centimetres and vice versa]
Use decimal notation for tenths, hundredths and thousandths; partition and order decimals with up to three places, and position them on the number line.
Order a set of fractions by converting them to fractions with a common denominator.
Understand that only multiplication and division can be applied to the numerator and denominator to achieve equal fractions. Change a fraction to its simplest form.
