Students explore the concept of probability and number theory. In this probability and number theory instructional activity, students play an on-line game where they roll two dice and move that many spaces. Students make tables of the number of ways a students can get a particular outcome. Students use trees to organize their data.
In this complex numbers worksheet, students simplify, plot, iterate, and state bounded or bounded for complex numbers in nine problems.  The solutions are provided.
In this mental math worksheet, learners complete 6 different sections in which they use mental math to solve problems. The first 3 sections consist of 45 subtraction, division and addition problems. The next 3 sections consist of 28 number theory and number challenge relays. There are 74 questions on this page.
Learners secure information online using cryptography. In this algebra lesson, students use RSA technology to encrypt information on the internet. They use modular reduction of natural numbers to understand prime number theory.
In this number theory learning exercise, students solve and complete 14 different problems that are related to number theory. First, they determine if a number to a particular power is the same as stating the two numbers times each other and why. Then, students determine a number squared and then cubed. They also determine the power of a number raised.
in this number theory worksheet, students use the Sieve of Eratosthenes to find all primes up to the number 100. Students follow the directions to circle primes and multiples on the hundred chart.
In this number theory worksheet, students complete a set of 22 problems covering GCD, LCM and prime factorization. Students then play a "family fun" game based on LCM. 
Students participate in a chain link game to improve their math skills with factors, multiples, primes, and composites. In this math game instructional activity, students review the math concepts for the game by writing definitions for the topics. Students then play the chain links game.
Students will use number theory skills to investigate when certain planets are aligned. Students review the order of the planets from the sun and use this data to create a human solar system. They are assigned the name of a planet, and physically demonstr
