This MQP examines the teaching practices concerning group theory in chemistry and chemistry in group theory at WPI as well as other colleges. The influence and importance of the interaction of the two subjects on each other is exemplified by its prevalence in academic texts as well as a recent research article in the mathematical sciences with applications in chemistry and a recent chemistry experiment, whose analysis used group theory as a tool.
