About MAED 225 Z1

This course introduces teachers to the branch of mathematics known as number theory, in which one studies properties of positive integers with respect to the operations of multiplication and division. Emphasis in this course is placed on the mathematical content of number theory and on how number theory is taught in grades K-8. Particular attention is given to student learning of number theory in these grades. Topics include the division algorithm, properties of prime and composite numbers, the sieve of Eratosthenes as a way of understanding distributions of primes and composites, the infinitude of primes, the fundamental theorem of arithmetic, properties of the greatest common factor and methods of computing the greatest common factor including the Euclidean algorithm, properties of least common multiples, use of base ten and expanded notation, writing numbers and computing in different bases, and arithmetic progressions.
