Intermediate Number TheoryNumber theory using algebraic techniques, multiplicative functions, Diophantine equations, modular arithmetic, Fermat's/Euler's Theorem, primitive roots, and quadratic residues. Much of the first half of the class emphasizes using the basic tools of the Introduction class in clever ways to solve difficult problems. In the second half, more theory will be developed, leading students to the beginning Olympiad level. |
