National Curriculum: Ratio and Proportion - Year 6

National Curriculum: Ratio and Proportion - Year 6

  • solve problems involving the relative sizes of two quantities where missing values can be found by using integer multiplication and division facts
  • solve problems involving the calculation of percentages [for example, of measures, and such as 15% of 360] and use percentages for comparison
  • 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

Non-Statutory Guidance

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

Pupils link percentages or 360° to calculating angles of pie charts.

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

Pupils solve problems involving unequal quantities e.g. ’for every egg you need three spoonfuls of flour’, ‘⅗ of the class are boys’. These problems are the foundation for later formal approaches to ratio and proportion.
