Abstract Algebra I

The study of "abstract algebra" grew out of an interest in knowing how attributes of sets of mathematical objects behave when one or more properties we associate with real numbers are restricted. The student will begin this course by reviewing basic set theory, integers, and functions in order to understand how algebraic operations arise and are used. The student then will proceed to the heart of the course, which is an exploration of the fundamentals of groups, rings, and fields. This free course may be completed online at any time. See course site for detailed overview and learning outcomes. (Mathematics 231)
