## Algebra for Social Scientists

I tutor several people in a "Mathematics for the Social Sciences" course at a local university. This semester the material is focused on matrix algebra. For the most part, they have no trouble wrapping their heads around the notions of basic vector operations, row reduction, systems of equations, inverse matrices and determinants. But, they have a lot of problems with more abstract concepts such as linear independence, subspaces, basis and dimension. I'm wondering if anyone has any tips on helping them visualize and understand these ideas more clearly.

## Tally of cycle types in a permutation group

Anyone good with GAP? I've defined a largish permutation group and would like to make a tally of elements by cycle type - how many of each cycle type occurs in the group. Possible? Trivial? Use something else instead? Oh, and where's the right place to ask GAP questions?

## Embarrassing but true: basic algebra eludes me, how do I solve this equation?

Follow up Filter. Last week on AskMe I asked for help getting a formula to calculate "future value" in excel. blue mustard came through with the perfect answer: "fv = pv (1+r)n + pmt ((1+r)n - (1+q)n) / (r-q)" Now, I need to have a formula I can plug into excel that solves for q in blue mustard's formula.

## Need Remedial Math

I'm currently a junior in college majoring in computer science. Like most geeks I slacked off during high school and now find that I don't know a lot of very basic math (my geometry is horrible, my algebra skills could be much better). This is very embarrassing and I would like to get caught up with this material as quickly as possible. I have two questions:

1) Are there any math audio books? A google search didn't show any, but this would be the best for me.

2) Are there any books aimed at adults for personal study?

I'd like to understand the theory behind the math more than the math itself. Anyways, any help is appreciated.

## Recommend books/resources for amateur to learn mathematics

I'd like to learn Math. I'm particularly interested in learning trig and calculus. I'm don't need to learn these disciplines for any purpose. I'm just interested. I'm a reasonably bright guy, with a logical mind (I've worked as a programmer), and I'm a good self-learner. I'm not in a rush (don't mind working at this for a few years). What books/resources would you recommend? I should probably go all the way back to Algebra, which is pretty much where I left off in High School years ago.
