#M336 #geometry #openuniversity
The Open University M336 course comes with 7 lectures on one DVD of about half an hour each, or almost four hours of lectures. The lectures are titled:
- Living with patterns
- Counting with groups
- Incidence symbols
- Lattices and wallpaper patterns
- Regular solids
- Octet for truss and comb
These lectures are additions to the booklets and excercises and are not meant to learn new material from, instead they reinforce what has been learned before.
So, although there is no entire lecture series covering the M336 materials you could easily create one by cherry picking lectures from the internet. For Group Theory you can use the first half of the Harvard Abstract Algebra course which covers group theory upto the Sylow Theorems.
For the geometry part you could use the MIT Course 'An Introduction to Crystallography'. This course contains 41 video lectures of which lectures 5 to 27 cover the material of the Geometry track in M336.
