#### What will we learn?

**Number theory** (or **arithmetic** or **higher arithmetic** in older usage) is a branch of Pure Mathematics devoted primarily to the study of the integers and integer-valued functions. German mathematician Carl Friedrich Gauss (1777–1855) said, “Mathematics is the queen of the sciences—and number theory is the queen of mathematics.”^{} Number theorists study Prime numbers as well as the properties of objects made out of integers (for example, Rational Numbers) or defined as generalizations of the integers (for example, algebraic integers). Number theory seeks to understand the properties of integer systems in spite of their apparent complexity..
