Number theory is the mathematical treatment of questions related to the integers. Elementary number theory is the part of number theory not dependent on advanced mathematics, such a the theory of complex variables, abstract algebra, or algebraic geometry. This course covers common topics including congruencies, multiplicative functions, primitive roots, quadratic residues, and continued fractions. Pre-requisite: MA 203 with letter grade "C" or better.
