  • Language and proof methods. Including: basic logic, quantifiers, basic set theory, mathematical induction, proof by contradiction, etc.
  • Elementary number theory. Including: divisibility of integers, greatest common divisor, Diophantine equations, congruence, Fermat’s little Theorem, Chinese Remainder Theorem, and RSA.
  • Complex numbers. Including: conjugates and modulus, polar coordinates, De Moivre’s theorem, complex n-th roots, etc.
  • Polynomials. Including: Fundamental Theorem of Algebra, Gauss’s lemma on rational roots, etc.
