Motivating the Notions of Binary Operation and Group in an Abstract Algebra Course
Cullinane, Michael J.
PRIMUS, v15 n4 p339-348 Dec 2005
Mathematics majors' study of abstract algebra should provide these students with opportunities to connect what they are learning to their prior experiences with algebra in high school. This paper illustrates how such connections can be used to motivate the notion of binary operation and the axioms for a group.
