10/20/2019 -- Intermediate 1B: Modular arithmetic

This week we begin on a very very very important topic in mathematics; Modular Arithmetic. Although the importance of this topic is not fully realized until a course in Abstract Algebra, it is still a very important topic because it can instill an understanding that the mathematics or arithmetic that we see commonly is not the only way of operating and that mathematics can be far more general and far reaching.
