Mathematics Year 3: (3F1a) Count up and down in tenths; recognise that tenths arise from dividing an object into 10 equal parts and in dividing one-digit numbers or quantities by 10

Mathematics Year 3: (3F10) Solve problems that involve 3F1 - 3F4

Mathematics Year 4: (4F6b) Recognise and write decimal equivalents of any number of tenths or hundredths

**Differentiation for Year 3 Count in Tenths:**

**Varied Fluency**

**Developing **Questions to support counting forwards in tenths. Pictorial support provided and numbers are less than 1.

**Expected **Questions to support counting forwards and backwards in tenths, including counting past ten tenths and linking it to the whole. Some pictorial support provided, and fractions are sometimes written in words.

**Greater Depth **Questions to support counting forwards and backwards in tenths, including counting past ten tenths and linking it to the whole. No pictorial support provided, and fractions are sometimes written in words.

**Reasoning and Problem Solving**

**Questions 1, 4 and 7 (Problem Solving)**

**Developing **Use the clues to find a fraction. Counting forwards using fractions less than ten tenths.

**Expected **Use the clues to find a fraction when the starting number is unknown. Counting forwards and backwards past ten tenths in fractions and words.

**Greater Depth **Use three clues to find a fraction as part of a multi-step problem when the starting number is unknown. Counting forwards and backwards past ten tenths in fractions and words.

**Questions 2, 5 and 8 (Reasoning)**

**Developing **Explain if a pictorial representation using tenths is correct. Counting forwards only using fractions.

**Expected **Explain if a pictorial representation using tenths is correct. Counting forwards and backwards using fractions and words.

**Greater Depth **Explain if a pictorial representation using tenths is correct when counting beyond the whole. Counting forwards and backwards using fractions and words.

**Questions 3, 6 and 9 (Reasoning)**

**Developing **Explain which statement, from two, is correct when counting forwards in tenths less than ten tenths. Written using fractions only.

**Expected **Explain which statement, from two, is correct when counting forwards and backwards in tenths past tent tenths. Written using a mixture of fractions and words.

**Greater Depth **Explain which statement, from three, is correct when counting forwards and backwards in tenths past tent tenths. Written using a mixture of fractions and words.

**Differentiation for Year 4 Tenths as Decimals:**
