Learning outcomes

# Title
1 Pupils explain the relationship between repeated addition of a proper fraction and multiplication of fractions (unit fractions)
2 Pupils explain the relationship between repeated addition of a proper fraction and multiplication of fractions (non-unit fractions)
3 Pupils multiply a proper fraction by a whole number (within a whole)
4 Pupils multiply a proper fraction by a whole number (greater than a whole)
5 Pupils multiply an improper fraction by a whole number
6 Pupils multiply a mixed number by a whole number (product is within a whole)
7 Pupils multiply a mixed number by a whole number (product is greater than a whole)
8 Pupils find a unit fraction of a quantity
9 Pupils explain the relationship between finding a fraction of a quantity and multiplying a whole number by a unit fraction
10 Pupils explain the relationship between dividing by a whole number and multiplying a whole number by a unit fraction
11 Pupils use their knowledge of multiplying a whole number by a unit fraction to solve problems
12 Pupils find a non-unit fraction of a quantity (mental calculation)
13 Pupils find a non-unit fraction of a quantity (written calculation)
14 Pupils multiply a whole number by a proper fraction
15 Pupils explain when a calculation represents scaling down and when it represents repeated addition
16 Pupils find the whole when the size of a unit fraction is known
17 Pupils find a unit fraction when the size of a non-unit fraction is known
18 Pupils find the whole when the size of a non-unit fraction is known
19 Pupils find the unit fraction when the size of a non-unit fraction is known
20 Pupils use representations to describe and compare two fractions (1/4 and 3/12)
21 Pupils use representations to describe and compare two fractions (1/5 and 5/10)
22 Pupils use representations to describe and compare two fractions (pouring context)
23 Pupils correctly use the language of equivalent fractions
24 Pupils explain the vertical relationship between numerators and denominators within equivalent fractions (1/5, 1/3 and equivalent)
25 Pupils use their knowledge of the vertical relationship to solve equivalent fractions problems
26 Pupils explain the horizontal relationship between numerators and denominators across equivalent fractions (1/5, 1/3 and equivalent)
27 Pupils explain the relationship within families of equivalent fractions
28 Pupils use their knowledge of equivalent fractions to solve problems
29 Pupils explain and represent how to divide 1 into different amounts of equal parts
30 Pupils identify and describe patterns within the number system
31 Pupils use their knowledge of common equivalents to compare fractions with decimals
32 Pupils practise recalling common fraction-decimal equivalents
