Essential to developing deeper understandings of mathematics, number theory has received scant attention in mathematics education research. This volume redresses this matter and serves as a launch point for further research in this important area.In mathematics courses for elementary teachers, the unique factorization of natural numbers guaranteed by the ... In our courses, we expected arguments concerning divisibility and prime factorization to take the theorem as a starting point.
