Math 3110 ( number theory video ) lecture 1

Watched Math 3110 ( number theory video ) lecture 1 to get an impression of the series. Will it be worth it watching the series again but this time in the 'Adams edition'? - Well, considering I still have to do a number theory exam in october, I better should.

One of the prerequisites of the course is an understanding of and experience with the following types of mathematical proof:
- direct
- contrapositive
- by contradiction
- by ( mathematical ) induction.

The first lecture starts with 20 min or so admin trivia which is only relevant for students who are actually doing the course at UCCS. The mathematics in this lecture starts with the WOP and ends with a proof by induction of the sum of an arithmetic sequence. See also: five proofs of the sum of 1,2,3, ..., n.

The required textbook for Math 311(0) is Elementary Number Theory by David Burton ( 7th ed. ).
Mathematics, an intellectual instrument. ( David Borton, History of Mathematics )

Mathematics: is it the fabric of MEST?
This is my voyage
My continuous mission
To uncover hidden structures
To create new theorems and proofs
To boldly go where no man has gone before

(Raumpatrouille – Die phantastischen Abenteuer des Raumschiffes Orion, colloquially aka Raumpatrouille Orion was the first German science fiction television series. Its seven episodes were broadcast by ARD beginning September 17, 1966. The series has since acquired cult status in Germany. Broadcast six years before Star Trek first aired in West Germany (in 1972), it became a huge success.)
