Ning: PCMI 2012


Participants will take part in a college level course -- Groups, Graphs and Trees -- offered in the Undergraduate Summer School program and, with a designated SSTP instructor, reflect on the mathematics they are learning and how some of the math might be used with secondary students. Geometric group theory is a field of mathematics which thrives on interesting examples, and interspersed with proving some introductory theorems, the course will focus in detail on several major families of groups that are studied from this perspective. Some knowledge of group theory is expected.
