Numbers are mathematical objects used to count, measure, and label. They can be used to represent quantities, order, and patterns.

There are several types of numbers, including:

- Whole Numbers: 0, 1, 2, 3, ...
- Integers: ... -3, -2, -1, 0, 1, 2, 3, ...
- Rational Numbers: Numbers that can be expressed as a fraction, such as 1/2, 3/4, 5/2, etc.
- Real Numbers: All rational and irrational numbers, such as √2, π, etc.

Numbers have various properties, including:

- Commutative Property: a + b = b + a
- Associative Property: (a + b) + c = a + (b + c)
- Distributive Property: a * (b + c) = a * b + a * c
- Identity Property: a + 0 = a, a * 1 = a
- Inverse Property: a + (-a) = 0, a * (1/a) = 1

Numbers are made up of digits, and the position of each digit in a number determines its value. This is known as place value.

For example, in the number 3,215, the digit 3 is in the thousands place, the digit 2 is in the hundreds place, the digit 1 is in the tens place, and the digit 5 is in the ones place.

Basic number operations include addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division. These operations follow specific rules and properties.

Prime numbers are numbers greater than 1 that have no positive divisors other than 1 and themselves. Composite numbers are numbers that have more than two positive divisors.

Even numbers are integers that are divisible by 2, while odd numbers are integers that are not divisible by 2.

Geometry (NCTM)

Analyze characteristics and properties of two- and three-dimensional geometric shapes and develop mathematical arguments about geometric relationships.

Identify, compare, and analyze attributes of two- and three-dimensional shapes and develop vocabulary to describe the attributes.

Use visualization, spatial reasoning, and geometric modeling to solve problems.

Use geometric models to solve problems in other areas of mathematics, such as number and measurement.
