Unit 7 – 6 weeks

The PowerPoint file contains slides you can use in the classroom to support each of the learning outcomes for this unit, listed below.

The slides are comprehensively linked to associated pedagogical guidance in the NCETM Primary Mastery Professional Development materials. There are also links to the ready-to-progress criteria detailed in the DfE Primary Mathematics Guidance 2020.

25 Pupils explain when and how to divide efficiently a fraction by a whole number
26 Pupils explain what percent means
27 Pupils explain how to represent a percentage in different ways
28 Pupils explain how to convert percentages to decimals and fractions (with a denominator of 100)
29 Pupils explain how to convert a percentage to a fraction (without denominator of 100)
30 Pupils use their knowledge of fraction-decimal-percentage conversions to solve conversion problems in a range of contexts
31 Pupils use their knowledge of calculating 50%, 10% and 1% of a number to solve problems in a range of contexts
32 Pupils use their knowledge of calculating common percentages of a number to solve problems in a range of contexts
33 Pupils use their knowledge of calculating any percentage of a number to solve problems in a range of contexts
34 Pupils explain how to solve problems where the percentage part and the size of the part is known and the whole is unknown
35 Pupils explain how to solve problems where the known percentage part and the size of the part changes the whole
