# What year level of maths is this?

 03/08/2012, 01:22 PM Post #1 Posts: 982   Joined: 7-October 08 Regular Member Is anyone able to tell me what year level of maths simplifying fractions is in the new National Curriculum? I imagine knowing 2/4 is the same as 1/2 may be very early primary school level but specifically what year level would the following example be typically fromsimplify 18/81thanks in advance

I currently teach grade 3/4 and a couple of my able kids would be able to do this if shown (it's simple really - divide by common factor of 9 leaves 2/9) but it's certainly not expected at this level.

I guess that makes it year 5/6?LQ
