# MATH 5325:

Structure of Number Concepts

The
course will offer an in-depth and relational investigation of numbers
and number systems, operations and algorithms, and quantitative and
qualitative reasoning. Number theory topics will enhance the mathematical
understanding and ability of secondary mathematics teachers within an
environment that is conducive to mathematics education pedagogy.

"The
concept of **number** is the obvious distinction between
the beast and man. Thanks to number, the cry becomes a song, noise acquires
rhythm, the spring is transformed into a dance, force becomes dynamic,
and outlines figures." -- *Joseph Marie de Maistre*
