abstract = {Summary: Group theory has traditionally been taught to mathematics majors using the ``theorem-proof-example'' format. Although this method of presentation is satisfying to a mathematician, many students have difficulty learning the concepts of group theory this way. More than 20 years ago, I transformed my abstract algebra classroom into an active learning environment by using the software package Exploring Small Groups. In this chapter, I describe my approach, illustrating it with a specific example, and discuss its impact on my students, my career and other mathematicians.},
