This is a QR code. A QR Code is a 2-dimensional barcode, which has encoded in it a URL (web address), text, or other information. It can be read by a QR code scanner, including QR scanner smartphone apps. Once you have an app installed on your smartphone, open the app and hold your phone’s camera over a QR code to read it. Most QR codes you’ll come across have a URL encoded, so chances are when you read the QR code it will take you to a web page.

I spent about 10 minutes just reading. Maybe a little more just because I had to go back and re-read a little bit of. I than spent about 5 more minutes just going through a couple problems on the calculator they have. This page definitely helps better understand the subject because it's not just something to read, there's also an activity that can be used to better understand the material. There are also links to continue to that explain the Lemma and Theorem better and why they got what they got. I think this would help people learn the subject better because you can test stuff out on the website as much as you want or until you get what's going on. This should definitely be used after the basics are explained because I didn't completely get what was going on because it was only gone over once in class before I came here. This would be easy enough to figure out as long as you have some basic understanding of groups and orders.
