# Year 4: Fractions

Pupils should connect hundredths to tenths and place value and decimal measure.

They should extend the use of the number line to connect fractions, numbers and measures.

Pupils should understand the relation between non-unit fractions and multiplication and division of quantities, with particular emphasis on tenths and hundredths.

Pupils should associate fractions of a length, of a shape and as a representation of one whole or set of quantities. Pupils should use factors and multiples to recognise equivalent fractions and simplify where appropriate (e.g. 6/9 = 2/3 or 1/4 = 2/8).

Pupils should continue practice in adding and subtracting fractions with the same denominator, to become fluent through a variety of increasingly complex problems beyond one whole.

They should practise counting using simple fractions and decimal fractions, both forwards and backwards.

New Maths Curriculum (2014): Year 4 objectives.

 Count up and down in hundredths; recognise that hundredths arise when dividing an object by a hundred and dividing tenths by ten Solve problems involving increasingly harder fractions to calculate quantities, and fractions to divide quantities, including non-unit fractions where the answer is a whole number identify, name and write equivalent fractions of a given fraction, including tenths and hundredths Add and subtract fractions with the same denominator
