# Computational Experiment in Teaching Higher Mathematics by the Example of Number Theory

## Abstract

The article continues the cycle of methodological developments of the authors [1] – [17]. It discusses some problems related to ways to improve the culture of mathematical thinking of mathematics students. The authors rely on the experience of working at the Faculty of Information Technology of MSUPE.
