Explanation

As there are two groups of authors we separate them with a comma and an ampersand in the author position. In the print edition, the author and the publisher are the same so we use Author in the publisher position.

In the online edition place of publication and Author are replaced with a web address prefaced by Retrieved from. Although it’s acceptable just to write the homepage URL http://www.corestandards.org/ it might be more helpful to readers to have the complete URL http://www.corestandards.org/Math/Content/K/introduction
