**Scheme of work: Key Stage 3: Year 8: Term 3: Multiplying and Dividing with Fractions**

- Order positive and negative integers, decimals and fractions; use the number line as a model for ordering the real numbers; use the symbols =, <= , <, >, >=
- Use the four operations, including formal written methods, applied to integers, decimals, proper and improper fractions, and mixed numbers, all both positive and negative

- When multiplying and dividing with fractions students should cross-simplify the question to cancel out common terms.
- Visualising division with fractions and mixed numbers helps students understand the written methods.
- To divide with fractions, students need to understand reciprocals and how to multiply and divide with 0.1 and 0.01.
- Answers should be left in their simplest terms.

- Develop fluency
- Consolidate their numerical and mathematical capability from key stage 2 and extend their understanding of the number system and place value to include decimals and fractions.

- Reason mathematically
- Extend their understanding of the number system; make connections between number relationships, and their algebraic and graphical representations

- Solve problems
- Develop their mathematical knowledge, in part through solving problems and evaluating the outcomes, including multi-step problems.

- Number
- Use conventional notation to prioritise operations, including brackets, powers, roots and reciprocals.
- Use the four operations, including formal written methods, applied to integers, decimals, proper and improper fractions, and mixed numbers, all both positive and negative
- Use a calculator and other technologies to calculate results accurately and then interpret them appropriately
