Help Develop "Tongue in Cheek" Abstract Algebra Proof Hello all, First and foremost I would like to thank everyone on the forum. Your post here have been invaluable in aiding me in completing many of my engineering courses. Now I am attempting to develop a "tongue in cheek" proof using the concepts of abstract algebra proving why a student should pass a course (Abstract Algebra). And I could use your help. A little background; I am a senior engineering student and for my last semester I am required to complete two course in upper level mathematics. I am currently successfully completing Linear Algebra (thank you again forum!) and much less successfully completing Abstract Algebra. If I don't pass the course then I will not graduate next month and I may not be able to return for a year or more if ever at all. Now there are many factors that have caused me to not be very successful in this course. My lack of knowledge of other fields of mathematics, lack of experience with mathematical proofs, ability to understand and retain the ideas presented in Abstract Algebra. I have however put more effort into passing this course than any other course I've ever had to complete. I've found tutoring, I've used the resources of this forum, I have even resorted to online lectures to help further my understanding of the subject, however it has not been enough to succeed primarily at exam time. My idea is; if I can show that I can use the concepts of abstract algebra to construct a proof then maybe my professor will see that the metrics for measuring a students success may not be good metric for all students. What better proof then to prove that a student should pass a course. So I ask for your help. Please help me develop a proof of why I should pass a course in Abstract Algebra using the concepts of the course. I could use help in laying out the structure of the proof and also in relating it to the concepts in Abstract Algebra. Any help or guidance would absolutely be appreciated!
