Who Should Take?

This course is appropriate for students in grades 6-9 who have mastered basic algebra up through solving linear equations and manipulating multi-variable expressions. Students who have completed our Introduction to Algebra A course should have sufficient background. Students who are already proficient with modular arithmetic and basic Diophantine equations do not need this course. This course is roughly the same difficulty as our Introduction to Counting and Probability class. For those preparing for contests, this course should help with MATHCOUNTS and the AMC 8/10/12 tests.

Required Textbook

Introduction to Number Theory
By Mathew Crawford
A thorough introduction for students in grades 7-10 to topics in number theory such as primes & composites, multiples & divisors, prime factorization and its uses, base numbers, modular arithmetic, divisibility rules, linear congruences, how to develop number sense, and more.

I really loved the course Introduction to Number Theory. I learned so many new ways to think about integers and numbers in general. After this course, I think my number sense is definitely better than when I started. Also, I had lots of fun doing it!
