Distribution of Primes This is a chart of how the primes are distributed. By arranging the numbers in a square, we get to see them in terms of modular arithmetic (in a way, that’s using multiples). For example in the 5x5, the 2nd column represents 2, 2+5, 2+10, 2+15, and 2+20. What patterns do you notice? Where do primes happen? Karl Gauss noticed that the farther up you go, the less primes there are. Can you see that here or do we need bigger numbers still? The idea for how to do this ...

Samantha visited 1821 to see Karl Gauss in Germany. Gauss created the heliograph, a solar telegraph that allowed the operator to signal across a distance by directing a beam of sunlight through mirrors. Shortly after in 1822, the British created a similar device and used it to survey the British Isles, calling the device a “heliostat.” This idea didn’t come from nothing though, ancient civilizations had been using the sun and mirror technique way before Gauss showed up and crashed the party.
