United Kingdom – National Curriculum expand/collapse

  • KS2 – Key Stage 2
    • KS2.Ma2 – Number and algebra
      • Knowledge, skills and understanding

        • Calculations

          • KS2.Ma2.3 – Pupils should be taught to:

            • Number operations and the relationships between them

              • KS2.Ma2.3.a – Develop further their understanding of the four number operations and the relationships between them including inverses; use the related vocabulary; choose suitable number operations to solve a given problem, and recognise similar problems to which they apply

            • Mental methods

              • KS2.Ma2.3.h – Multiply and divide, at first in the range 1 to 100 [for example, 27 x 3, 65 ÷ 5], then for particular cases of larger numbers by using factors, distribution or other methods

            • Written methods

              • KS2.Ma2.3.j – Use written methods for short multiplication and division by a single-digit integer of two-digit then three-digit then four-digit integers, then of numbers with decimals; then use long multiplication, at first for two-digit by two-digit integer calculations, then for three-digit by two-digit calculations; extend division to informal methods of dividing by a two-digit divisor [for example, 64 ÷ 16]; use approximations and other strategies to check that their answers are reasonable

  • 6 – Year 6
    • 6.NA – Number and algebra
      • 6.NA.1 – Apply additive and simple multiplicative strategies flexibly to:

        • 6.NA.1.a – Combine or partition whole numbers, including performing mixed operations and using addition and subtraction as inverse operations

United States – Common Core State Standards expand/collapse

  • 4 – Grade 4

      • Mathematics

        • 4.NBT.5 – Multiply a whole number of up to four digits by a one-digit whole number, and multiply two two-digit numbers, using strategies based on place value and the properties of operations. Illustrate and explain the calculation by using equations, rectangular arrays, and/or area models.
