EMATH 6108 Constructing Mathematical Understanding for Number Theory

Participants develop a solid conceptual understanding of the branch of mathematics known as number theory. Topics include properties of prime, composite, abundant, deficient, and perfect numbers; divisibility rules; and the use of geometric and other representations for finding prime factorizations and greatest common factors. Participants will also investigate the fundamental theorem of arithmetic, computing in different bases, and arithmetic progressions.
