Pythonic Math
Lesson Plan:  Simple Groups

A simple and gentle introduction to group theory,
well trammeled in the literature, uses modulo

Pythonic Math
Lesson Plan:  T-Mod with a Turtle

Triacontahedron.  Use the Standard Library
turtle module, print to paper, cut and fold, 60
left handed, 60 right handed.

Example implementation:

Related lessons:  trace A, B modules, same
volume as T modules
