Prerequisite: Successful completion of high school precalculus, concurrent enrollment in MATH 118 or 119, or faculty permission.
Investigate number and operation through calculation and abstraction, find patterns and relationships through computation, develop and test mathematical conjectures, and develop an appreciation of proof and an ability to make mathematical arguments. Basic concepts from Number Theory are explored, culminating in proof of the Fundamental Theorem of Arithmetic and related theorems in other number sets. 3 hours discussion.
