Basic calculations – rounding to suit the context, estimation, meaning and magnitude of numbers involved including decimal, fraction and percentages. Ascertain the reasonableness of answers to the accuracy required, including the required number of decimal places. Calculations with whole numbers, order of operations. Convert between fractions, decimals and percentages, using a calculator when appropriate. Practical applications include creating a budget, using time sheets to calculate weekly wages (including over time), tax tables, converting between weekly, fortnightly and yearly incomes, converting amount in recipe to a larger or smaller serving, money spent in school canteen.
