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.

This was the first AoPS class I have taken, and I feel like it was lots of fun and the instructor was very helpful without giving away too many hints. The class also opened my eyes up to a lot of new possibilities and kind of made me feel very small in the sense that there is a vast amount of problem solving techniques and mathematics branches that I have yet to even hear about, much less learn or master. It was also my first online class, and I loved the flexibility it gave me in doing homework and keeping up with class.
