Use estimation and rounding to check the reasonableness of answers to calculations.

Solve problems involving multiplication of large numbers by one¬ or two digit numbers using efficient mental, written strategies and appropriate digital technologies.

Solve problems involving division by a one digit number, including those that result in a remainder.

Use efficient mental and written strategies and apply appropriate digital technologies to solve problems.

Compare and order common unit fractions and locate and represent them on a number line.

Recognise that the place value system can be extended beyond hundredths.

Compare, order and represent decimals.

Create simple financial plans.

Describe, continue and create patterns with fractions, decimals and whole numbers resulting from addition and subtraction.

Use equivalent number sentences involving multiplication and division to find unknown quantities.

Choose appropriate units of measurement for length, area, volume, capacity and mass.

Calculate the perimeter and area of rectangles using familiar metric units.

Compare 12¬ and 24¬hour time systems and convert between them.

Connect three-dimensional objects with their nets and other two-dimensional representations.

Use a grid reference system to describe locations. Describe routes using landmarks and directional language.

Describe translations, reflections and rotations of two-dimensional shapes. Identify line and rotational symmetries.

Apply the enlargement transformation to familiar two dimensional shapes and explore the properties of the resulting image compared with the original.

Estimate, measure and compare angles using degrees. Construct angles using a protractor.

List outcomes of chance experiments involving equally likely outcomes and represent probabilities of those outcomes using fractions.

Recognise that probabilities range from 0 to 1

Pose questions and collect categorical or numerical data by observation or survey.

Construct displays, including column graphs, dot plots and tables, appropriate for data type, with and without the use of digital technologies.

Describe and interpret different data sets in context.

End of year 5 achievement standard

Number and Algebra

Students solve simple problems involving the four operations using a range of strategies including digital technology. They estimate to check the reasonableness of answers and approximate answers by rounding. Students identify and describe factors and multiples. They explain plans for simple budgets. Students order decimals and unit fractions and locate them on a number line. Students add and subtract fractions with the same denominator. They find unknown quantities in number sentences and continue patterns by adding or subtracting fractions and decimals.

Measurement and Geometry

Students use appropriate units of measurement for length, area, volume, capacity and mass, and calculate perimeter and area of rectangles. They convert between 12 and 24­hour time. Students use a grid reference system to locate landmarks. They estimate angles, and use protractors and digital technology to construct and measure angles. Students connect three­ dimensional objects with their two dimensional representations. They describe transformations of two dimensional shapes and identify line and rotational symmetry.

Statistics and Probability

Students pose questions to gather data and construct various displays appropriate for the data, with and without the use of digital technology. They compare and interpret different data sets. Students list outcomes of chance experiments with equally likely outcomes and assign probabilities as a number from 0 to 1.
