Math 312--Our Book:

Table of the integers 1 through 400 with
their prime factorizations, the sum of their divisors, expressed as sums of
squares, and as sums of primes.

Chapter 1. Elementary
facts about positive integers.

Chapter 2. The
beginnings of divisibility (Other than "indivisibility," can you
think of a word with more i's than this?) theory and some random interesting
facts about triangular numbers, Pythagorean triangles, and perfect numbers.

Chapter 3. Mersenne and Fermat primes,
nailing down the square triangles, counting primes, and considering polynomials
that generate them.

Chapter 3.5 A characterization of
all abundant numbers with fewer than four factors.

Chapter 4. Pythagorean triples,
introduction to congruence, solving linear congruences and systems of them.

Chapter 5. The
distribution of primes, Fermat's Little Theorem, and sundry other good stuff.

Chapter 6. The proof
of the Chinese Remainder Theorem, Wilson's Theorem, multiplicative functions.

Chapter 7. Euler's
phi function and Bertrand's Postulate.

Chapter 8. Some notes on the exam and primitive roots.

Chapter 9. Some
elementary group theory, stuff about primitive roots, quadratic residues, and
final exam topics.

Chapter 10. The Law
of Quadratic Reciprocity and sums of two squares.
