Understand that fractions, decimals, percentages and ratios are all ways of expressing numbers, convert between them at will, and use all forms to perform appropriate proportional change. Can perform perimeter area & volume calculations. Understand and algebraic notation, representing unknowns and variables with letters. Understand that sequences can be represented by a sequence of numbers, equations or graphs. Can perform angle calculations.
