Analogies for Group Ring Field

  1. Jul 29, 2011 #1
    As we know for the average Undergrad attempting to grasp (and understand) these abstract mathematical concepts can be challenging to say the least. I was (and still am in some sense :P) in that boat. Does anyone have any Analogies or creative ways of explaining these and getting their meaning across while retaining some type of concrete idea?

    The best way would be to start with simple examples of groups/fields/rings.
