- HSN-CN.A.1Know there is a complex number i such that i^{2} = -1, and every complex number has the form a + bi with a and b real.
- HSN-CN.A.2Use the relation i^{2} = -1 and the commutative, associative, and distributive properties to add, subtract, and multiply complex numbers.
- HSN-CN.A.3(+) Find the conjugate of a complex number; use conjugates to find moduli and quotients of complex numbers.
