Books 18, 19 and 20 cover 27 learning intentions for children in Year 6, aged about 10 to 11 years old.
At this level, students are learning to choose the best way to solve an addition or subtraction problem from a range of strategies. They see numbers as ‘whole’ units but also understand that ‘nested’ within these units is a range of possibilities for partitioning (breaking up) and recombining. This is called part-whole thinking.
For example, 29 + 28 = ?
Using compensation: 30 + 27 or 30 + 28 – 1
Using place value partitioning: 29 + 20 + 8
or 20 + 20 + 9 + 8.
They can also derive multiplication from known facts, e.g., 3 x 8 = 24, so 6 x 8 = 24 + 24 = 48. By now they should know their times tables, decimal numbers to three places and be able to read any fraction.
