Overview

This learning program covers the essential components of Year 6 Number while addressing Number and Algebra outcomes for the Australian Curriculum. Year 6 students learn about the relationships between fractions, decimals and percentages; apply the order of operations correctly when adding, subtracting, multiplying and dividing decimals and whole numbers. They identify appropriate methods to perform calculations when posing and solving problems with and without technology.
