Number Theory. Mathematics-Methods Program Unit. Student Manual [and] Instructor's Manual.
Thompson, Maynard; And Others
This unit is 1 of 12 developed for the university classroom portion of the Mathematics-Methods Program (MMP), created by the Indiana University Mathematics Education Development Center (MEDC) as an innovative program for the mathematics training of prospective elementary school teachers (PSTs). Each unit is written in an activity format that involves the PST in doing mathematics with an eye toward application of that mathematics in the elementary school. This document is one of four units that are devoted to mathematical topics for the elementary teacher. In addition to an introduction to the unit and an overview of number theory, the student text has sections on divisibility, prime numbers, and factorization; problems and problem solving; applications, connections, and generalizations; and an appendix that presents a detailed example of problem solving. The instructor's manual parallels the pupils text and provides comments and suggested procedure, major questions, rules for materials preparation, and answers to problems in the student document.
