Euler's formula with introductory group theory

by Volker Weber

When I went to highschool. a young math teacher taught us something the parents were absolutely furious about: group theory. They could not see how this would ever help us as adults. As it turned out later, it was probably the most important thing I learned in math, and it helped me sail through engineering without much effort. It's not a method but a vantage point to observe things from.

I would have a hard time learning this at my current age, so if this video twists your mind, that is perfectly normal.
