The aim of the Strive to Thrive Learning Program for Year 6 is to:
- Solve problems involving all four operations with whole numbers;
- Connect fractions, decimals and percentages;
- Solve additional and subtraction of related fractions.
Students extend their knowledge of the key areas of mathematics, particularly of fractions and decimals. They increasingly use models, pictures and symbols to represent and communicate mathematical ideas.
Typically, students will:
- place positive and negative numbers on a number line
- add and subtract fractions and decimals
- compare and interpret statistical graphs
- convert between 12- and 24-hour time and interpret timetables
- continue and create sequences, involving whole numbers, fractions and decimals, and describe rules
- measure length, area, volume, capacity and mass, and calculate perimeter and area of rectangles
- list outcomes of chance experiments
- apply fractions, decimals, percentages, angles and measurements to solve problems
- explain mental strategies for calculations
- pose appropriate questions for statistical investigations.
