Year 6: Ratio and proportion

Pupils should consolidate their understanding of ratio when comparing quantities, sizes and scale drawings by solving a variety of problems. They may use the notation a:b to record their work.

Pupils should recognise proportionality in contexts when the relations between quantities are in the same ratio (e.g. similar shapes, recipes).

Solve problems involving the relative sizes of two quantities, including similarity
Solve problems involving unequal sharing and grouping.
Solve problems involving similar shapes where the scale factor is known or can be found

Solve problems involving unequal sharing and grouping using knowledge of fractions and multiples
