FRACTIONS  5F2a  Recognise mixed numbers and improper fractions and convert from one form to the other; write mathematical statements >1 as a mixed number [eg: ⅖ + ⅘ = 1 ⅕] 

5F2b  Identify name and write equivalent fractions of a given fraction, represented visually, including tenths and hundredths 

5F3  Compare and order fractions whose denominators are all multiples of the same number 

5F4  Add and subtract fractions with the same denominator and denominators that are multiples of the same number 

5F5  Multiply proper fractions and mixed numbers by whole numbers, supported by materials and diagrams 

5F6a  Read and write decimal numbers as fractions [eg: 0.71 = 71 ⁄ 100] 

5F6b  Recognise and use thousandths and relate them to tenths, hundredths and decimal equivalents 

5F7  Round decimals with two decimal places to the nearest whole number and to one decimal place 

5F8  Read, write, order and compare numbers with up to three decimal places 

5F10  Solve problems involving numbers up to three decimal places 

5F11  Recognise the per cent symbol (%) and understand that per cent relates to 'number of parts per hundred'; write percentages as a fraction with denominator hundred, and as a decimal. 

5F12  Solve problems which require knowing percentage and decimal equivalents of ½ , ¼ , ⅕ , ⅖ , ⅘ and those fractions with a denominator of a multiple of 10 or 25
