lower bounds for data given to aspecified accuracy (e.g. measuredlengths).
Demonstrate anunderstanding of the elementaryideas and notion of ratio direct andinverse proportion; divide aquantity in a given ratio
Express direct and inversevariation in algebraic terms anduse this form of expression to findunknown quantities; increase anddecrease a quantity by a givenratio.
Demonstrate anunderstanding of commonmeasures of rate; use scales inpractical situations, calculateaverage speed.
Carry out calculationsinvolving reverse percentages, e.g.finding the cost price given theselling price and the percentageprofit.
Use an electronic calculator efficiently; apply appropriatechecks of accuracy.
Use current units of mass,length, area, volume, and capacityin practical situations and expressquantities in terms of larger or smaller units.
Calculate times in terms of the 24-hour and 12-hour clock;read clocks, dials and timetables.

Use given data to solveproblems on personal andhousehold finance involvingearnings, simple interest andRevise equivalent fractions. Use this idea to aid addition and subtractionof fractions. Revise multiplication and division of fractions and convertbetween fractions, decimals and percentages.Use place value (units, tenths, hundredths etc.) to change a simpledecimal into a fraction.Revise rounding numbers to the nearest 10, 100, 1000, etc., or to a setnumber of decimal places.Explain carefully how to round a number to a given number of significantfigures.Use straightforward examples to determine upper and lower bounds for data. For example, a length, l, measured as 3cm to the nearestmillimetre has lower bound 2.95cm and upper bound 3.05cm. Show howthis information can be written using inequality signs e.g. 2.95cm ≤ l <3.05cm.
Class activity:
Investigate upper and lower bounds for quantitiescalculated from given formulae by specifying the accuracy of the inputdata.Draw a graph to determine whether two quantities (y and x or y and x2,etc.) are in proportion.Solve problems involving direct or inverse proportion using the notation y
y = kx and y
y = k/x , where k is a constant.Use straightforward examples to illustrate how a quantity can beincreased or decreased in a given ratio, e.g. enlarging a photograph. Theidea of similar shapes can be introduced here.
Class activity:
