State Standards

NYS Mathematics Standards

The student produces evidence that demonstrates understanding of number and operation concepts; that is, the student:

**a** Consistently and accurately adds, subtracts, multiplies, and divides rational numbers using appropriate methods (e.g., the student can add + mentally or on paper but may opt to add + on a calculator) and raises rational numbers to whole number powers. (Students should have facility with the different kinds and forms of rational numbers, i.e., integers, both whole numbers and negative integers; and other positive and negative rationals, written as decimals, as percents, or as proper, **improper**, or** mixed fractions**. Irrational numbers, i.e., those that cannot be written as a ratio of two integers, are not required content but are suitable for introduction, especially since the student should be familiar with the irrational number .)
