The main prerequisite is basic linear algebra, though some knowledge of

elementary number theory would be helpful, and the chapters on polynomial factorization assume some familiarity with basic abstract algebra, especially the theory of polynomial rings.

Some nursing curricula include a course in contemporary mathematics, which is composed of the study and applications of

elementary number theory, algebra, geometry, measurement, graph sketching and interpretations, and descriptive statistics.

One of the most important results of

elementary number theory is the so-called law of quadratic reciprocity, which links prime numbers (those evenly divisible only by themselves and one) and perfect squares (whole numbers multiplied by themselves).
