 # Mathematics year 1–10 (MAT01‑05) Competence aims and assessment

## Competence aims after year 6

• explore
, name and place decimal numbers on the number line
• explore
strategies for calculating with decimal numbers and
compare
this with strategies for calculating with whole numbers
• formulate and solve problems from one’s own everyday life related to decimal numbers, fractions and percentages, and explain one’s own thought processes
• describe
properties and minimum definitions of two and three dimensional figures, and explain what properties the figures have in common, and what properties distinguish them from one another
• explore
and
describe
symmetry in patterns and carry out congruent mapping with and without a coordinate system
• measure
the radius, diameter and circumference of circles, and
explore
and argue for how they are interrelated
• explore
measures for area and volume in practical situations and represent them in different ways
• use
different strategies to calculate area and circumference, and
explore
the relationships between these
• use
variables and formulas to express relationships in practical situations
• use
variables, loops, conditions and functions in programming to
explore
geometric figures and patterns
