2. Pupils should be taught to:

Fractions, percentages and ratio

f) understand that ‘percentage’ means the ‘number of parts per 100’ and that it can be used for comparisons; find percentages of whole number quantities, using a calculator where appropriate


i) 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 £, convert a length such as 1.36 metres to centimetres and vice versa];
j) convert between centimetres and millimetres or metres, then between millimetres and metres


3. Pupils should be taught to:

Ma3 Shape, space and measures

Understanding measures

4. Pupils should be taught to:
a) recognise the need for standard units of length, mass and capacity, choose which ones are suitable for a task, and use them to make sensible estimates in everyday situations; convert one metric unit to another [for example, convert 3.17kg to 3170g]; know the rough metric equivalents of imperial units still in daily use

Processing, representing and interpreting data

2. Pupils should be taught to:
b) interpret tables, lists and charts used in everyday life; construct and interpret frequency tables, including tables for grouped discrete data

Breadth of study

1. During the key stage, pupils should be taught the Knowledge, skills and understanding through:
d) applying their measuring skills in a range of contexts
f) exploring and using a variety of resources and materials, including ICT
g) activities in which pupils decide when the use of calculators is appropriate and then use them effectively
h) using mathematics in their work in other subjects.
