Prime numbers are one of the most important subjects in mathematics. Many mathematicians from ancient times to the 21st century have studied prime numbers.

In this math course, you will learn the definition and basic properties of prime numbers, and how they obey mysterious laws. Some prime numbers were discovered several hundred years ago whereas others have only been proven recently. Even today, many mathematicians are trying to discover new laws of prime numbers.

Calculating by a pen and paper, you will explore the mysterious world of prime numbers. Join us as we tackle math problems, and work together to discover new laws on prime numbers. Let's study and have fun!

Sara J. Carvajal partially completed this course, spending 2 hours a week on it and found the course difficulty to be hard.
The course was easy at the beginning, but then the assignments became a bit more complex. You definitely need a programming background to do get the answers (it would take forever to perform the calculation by hand) and that is not stated at first, hence the 3 stars.
