The mapping class group of an orientable surface is the group of isotopy classes of orientation-preserving homeomorphisms of the surface. Given an infinite group such as the mapping class group, we are often interested in studying the large-scale geometry of this group. I will describe what is meant by the geometry of a group and outline some geometric properties of mapping class groups and how we can study them.
