Year 6 - Number and Algebra

Standard 6.OA.1.2 - Solve addition and subtraction word problems with decimals.

Included Skills:

Fractions and decimals

• Compare fractions with related denominators and locate and represent them on a number line

- demonstrating equivalence between fractions using drawings and models

• Solve problems involving addition and subtraction of fractions with the same or related denominators

- understanding the processes for adding and subtracting fractions with related denominators and fractions as an operator, in preparation for calculating with all fractions

- solving realistic additive (addition and subtraction) problems involving fractions to develop understanding of equivalent fractions and the use of fractions as operators

- modelling and solving additive problems involving fractions by using methods such as jumps on a number line, or by making diagrams of fractions as parts of shapes

• Find a simple fraction of a quantity where the result is a whole number, with and without digital technologies

- recognising that finding one third of a quantity is the same as dividing by 3

• Add and subtract decimals, with and without digital technologies, and use estimation and rounding to check the reasonableness of answers

- extending whole-number strategies to explore and develop meaningful written strategies for addition and subtraction of decimal numbers to thousandths

- exploring and practising efficient methods for solving problems requiring operations on decimals, to gain fluency with calculating with decimals and with recognising appropriate operations

• Multiply decimals by whole numbers and perform divisions by non-zero whole numbers where the results are terminating decimals, with and without digital technologies

- interpreting the results of calculations to provide an answer appropriate to the context

• Multiply and divide decimals by powers of 10

- multiplying and dividing decimals by multiples of powers of 10

• Make connections between equivalent fractions, decimals and percentages

- connecting fractions, decimals and percentages as different representations of the same number, moving fluently between representations and choosing the appropriate one for the problem being solved
