    Fermat's Last Theorem resources

    Are there any resources which describe FLT in a very tangible way which will motivate students to be interested in this subject?

    If students "become motivated" in this subject, what will be "gained"?

    I don't know about any texts that will address this specifically (I'm not a number theorist) but on the other hand you could introduce the subject by teaching proofs for specific integer powers. Here is a good start on that.
