Understand the nature of the real number system, the elements and
operations that make up the system, and some of the rules that govern the operations. Examine a finite number system that follows some (but not all) of the same rules, and then compare this system to the real number system.

Other good sources include nuts and seeds, and wheatgerm (the part of the wheat grain that will develop into the new plant) an
