Simple ideas, like adding together two odds to make an even, can lead to fascinating insights with important real world applications.We offer you some simple starting points exploring factors and multiples, remainders and number bases, the foundations of the field mathematicians call Number Theory.
When we divide, we're rarely interested in what's left over. In these problems and games, we invite you to take a closer look at remainders and learn about Modular Arithmetic, an important area of Number Theory.
We count in base ten because most of us have ten fingers. But what if we only had seven or eight? Here's a chance for you to explore the properties of base 10 as well as some less familiar number bases.
