A First Glance into the World of the Abstract

Abstract: 

In this talk, I want to talk about plain, simple algebra. I'm not going to talk about polynomials or roots or anything like that. I'm going to get a little more abstract. This lecture will be an introduction into the subject of Modern Algebra. We will define what a group is, lay out the groundwork for some important Group theory results and then delve into specific examples of groups such as the cyclic group, the symmetric group, and the dihedral group.
