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.
