WELCOME TODoc Benton's Academy for Mathematical Wizards! |
Doc Benton officially endorses Hillary for President! Regardless of what you think about the intellectual merit of Donald Trump's proposals, he has shown time and time again that he is emotionally and psychologically unfit to be Commander-in-Chief of the world's most powerful nation. Additionally, even if you like a third party candidate better, the polls show very clearly that they have no chance of winning and that a vote for them instead of Hillary makes it more likely that Trump will win. There is no other rational alternative. Vote for Hillary! |
Welcome to "Doc Benton's Academy for Mathematical Wizards!" I am recently retired, and this site will be under reconstruction for at least the coming the year. Nonetheless, below is what I have accomplished so far in my quest to create materials on group theory that an intelligent high school student could benefit from. Right now I am just getting the bare bones in place, and when I'm done with that, I will clean up and simplify the text as much as possible in order to try and make everything perfectly clear and unambiguous. Enjoy!
This first section teaches you a lot about group theory without delving into proofs. Many times, instead of a formal proof, I just give a typical example. Furthermore, each lesson is followed by some practice problems and answers, and then this is quite often followed by a related Youtube video. The videos generally explain or do things differently or introduce additional notation, and so paying attention to them will give your mind increased fexibility in dealing with groups. Groups are wonderful!
