**Number Theory Through Inquiry**

by David C. Marshall, Edward Odell & Michael Starbird

*Number Theory Through Inquiry* is an innovative textbook that leads students on a guided discovery of introductory number theory. The book has two equally significant goals. One goal is to help students develop mathematical thinking skills, particularly, theorem-proving skills. The other goal is to help students understand some of the wonderfully rich ideas in the mathematical study of numbers. This book is appropriate for a proof transitions course, for an independent study experience, or for a course designed as an introduction to abstract mathematics. Mathematics or related majors, future teachers, and students or adults interested in exploring mathematical ideas on their own will enjoy *Number Theory Through Inquiry. Number Theory Through Inquiry* contains a carefully arranged sequence of challenges that lead students to discover ideas about numbers and to discover methods of proof on their own. It is designed to be used with an instructional technique variously called guided discovery or Modified Moore Method or Inquiry Based Learning (IBL). Instructor's Manuals available to teachers who adopt *Number Theory through Inquiry* as a text. Contact our Service Center for details at 1-800-331-1622.
