systems include Hindu-Arabic, Egyptian, Mayan, Roman, Babylonian, and systems that
have bases other than 10.
- Demonstrate applications of the basic properties of and algorithms for addition, subtraction,
multiplication, and division of whole numbers, integers, rational numbers, real numbers,
and numbers in different bases.
- Demonstrate applications of elementary number theory including prime and composite
numbers and finding the greatest common divisor and least common multiple of a given
set of whole numbers.

9, 10, or 11.
- Express a number as a percent, fraction, or decimal.
- Determine if a number is rational or irrational by looking at its decimal expansion.
- Express a repeating decimal as a fraction in lowest terms.
- Basic algebraic thinking - variables, equations, and elementary functions, introduction
to problem solving, set up ratios and proportions to solve applied problems.
