Chinese Remainder Theorem

  1. Oct 6, 2013 #1
    What is the most tangible way to introduce the Chinese Remainder Theorem? What are the practical and really interesting examples of this theorem. I am looking for examples which have a real impact on students.

    The Wikipedia article seems fairly subsantial in this case, with several practical applications mentioned, and might perhaps be an inspiration to an instructor to point to possible others?
