We will begin with a short discussion on considerations for active learning, followed by how to create buy-in for students. Afterwards, we will go over different techniques depending on content goals and group sizes. We...

    How do you choose a random finite abelian group? A d x d integer matrix M gives a linear map from Z^d to Z^d. The cokernel of M is Z^d/Im(M). If det(M) is nonzero, then the cokernel is a finite abelian group of order det(M) and rank at most d. What do these groups ‘look like’? How often are they cyclic? What can we say about their p-...
