# Mathematical modelling: Year 6 – planning tool

This planning resource for Year 6 is for the topic of Mathematical modelling. Students use mathematical modelling to solve practical problems involving natural and rational numbers and percentages, including in financial contexts. They formulate the problem, choose operations and efficient calculation strategies, and use digital tools where appropriate. They interpret and communicate solutions in terms of the situation, justifying the choices made.
