Product-Free Sets in the Card Game Set
Holdener, Judy A.
PRIMUS, v15 n4 p289-297 Dec 2005
The card game SET has attracted the attention of math and game enthusiasts alike. In this article, I present a first semester Abstract Algebra project that guides the students through an algebraic formulation of the game. There are many interesting mathematical questions that one can ask about the game, and I illustrate how the project can be used to get students working on such questions. In this way, the project can also serve as an opportunity for undergraduate research. (Contains 3 figures.)
