1/8/2023 | **Quarter Goals:**
- Learn the basics of abstract algebra
- Model the card game SET with pure math and Python
**Class Logistics:**
We will meet from 4-6 pm at Math Sciences 6229 **Class Plan:**
We will introduce/play the card game SET and explain our goals for the quarter. Then we begin brainstorming about numbers and algebraic axioms. Handouts will be posted after the lesson. **Required Resources:**
Dr. Gleizer emailed the class parents regarding purchasing a copy of the card game SET. Please ask your child to bring it to class this week. Have your children bring a pencil and eraser. No computers or associated accessories should be brought. **Homework Due:**
None. **Homework Assigned:**
