Group Theory Seminar

This 7-week seminar is an introduction to the basics of group theory. In this seminar we will focus on defining and understanding groups: how they are constructed and how they interact with the rest of the world. This seminar is not intended to be a complete group theory course (which is a core component of a college undergraduate mathematics curriculum), but rather is intended to give strong high school students a first look at the most important concepts and examples of this very vast subject.

I really enjoyed taking my first AoPS class. I always thought that online classes weren't very good. I was mistaken after I took this class. Not only did Introduction to Geometry help me become a better math student, it also helped me to think more abstractly and look for multiple roads to solve a problem. I enjoy the way the classroom is run and the pace was very nice. The class wasn’t boring at all. This class challenged me to become a better thinker and was way more challenging than regular school courses. I am also very glad that AoPS also included a little bit of a social aspect to math with the message boards. I made a lot of friends through this course. In school, I am always made fun of for being ahead of all of the other students. On AoPS I actually feel accepted for once because I can interact with kids that are more advanced than I am and also I learn from them. I will definitely take another AoPS class.
