MENTAL CALCULATION  

 write and calculate mathematical statements for multiplication and division using the multiplication tables that they know, including for twodigit numbers times onedigit numbers, using mental and progressing to formal written methods (appears also in Written Methods)  use place value, known and derived facts to multiply and divide mentally, including: multiplying by 0 and 1; dividing by 1; multiplying together three numbers  multiply and divide numbers mentally drawing upon known facts  perform mental calculations, including with mixed operations and large numbers
 
 show that multiplication of two numbers can be done in any order (commutative) and division of one number by another cannot

 recognise and use factor pairs and commutativity in mental calculations (appears also in Properties of Numbers)  multiply and divide whole numbers and those involving decimals by 10, 100 and 1000  associate a fraction with division and calculate decimal fraction equivalents (e.g. 0.375) for a simple fraction (e.g. ^{3}/_{8}) (copied from Fractions)  
WRITTEN CALCULATION  
Year 1  Year 2  Year 3  Year 4  Year 5  Year 6  
 calculate mathematical statements for multiplication and division within the multiplication tables and write them using the multiplication (×), division (÷) and equals (=) signs
 write and calculate mathematical statements for multiplication and division using the multiplication tables that they know, including for twodigit numbers times onedigit numbers, using mental and progressing to formal written methods (appears also in Mental Methods)  multiply twodigit and threedigit numbers by a onedigit number using formal written layout
 multiply numbers up to 4 digits by a one or twodigit number using a formal written method, including long multiplication for twodigit numbers  multiply multidigit numbers up to 4 digits by a twodigit whole number using the formal written method of long multiplication
 



 divide numbers up to 4 digits by a onedigit number using the formal written method of short division and interpret remainders appropriately for the context  divide numbers up to 4digits by a twodigit whole number using the formal written method of short division where appropriate for the context divide numbers up to 4 digits by a twodigit whole number using the formal written method of long division, and interpret remainders as whole number remainders, fractions, or by rounding, as appropriate for the context  




 use written division methods in cases where the answer has up to two decimal places (copied from Fractions (including decimals))
 
PROPERTIES OF NUMBERS: MULTIPLES, FACTORS, PRIMES, SQUARE AND CUBE NUMBERS  
Year 1  Year 2  Year 3  Year 4  Year 5  Year 6

use common factors to simplify fractions; use common multiples to express fractions in the same denomination (copied from Fractions)
 
know and use the vocabulary of prime numbers, prime factors and composite (nonprime) numbers  
establish whether a number up to 100 is prime and recall prime numbers up to 19  



 recognise and use square numbers and cube numbers, and the notation for squared (^{2}) and cubed (^{3})  calculate, estimate and compare volume of cubes and cuboids using standard units, including centimetre cubed (cm^{3}) and cubic metres (m^{3}), and extending to other units such as mm^{3 }and km^{3} (copied from Measures)
