To mathematicians, a group isn't just what you form when you and your friends go out on the weekend; it's an object with lots of useful structure. We'll delve into exactly what a group is, and explore some problems that can be solved nicely using them. The goal of this course is to introduce students of varying background and interest to what a mathematician actually does, and to explore some potentially new ways of thinking and solving problems. We'll be thinking about a bunch of cool problems that are easy to state without mathematical background, but have deep connections to group theory, from historical puzzles, to a conundrum from Futurama. We'll do our best to solve these problems together and then we'll build some tools that make the solutions a bit easier. You don't need to have any experience with math beyond high school algebra to understand the concepts of this class, so everybody is encouraged to try it out.
