Text: Basic Algebra I by N. Jacobson, Dover Publications, 2009
Course: The goal of this course is to study the basic algebraic structures: groups,
rings, fields and modules. During the first semester I will discuss Chapters 1 through
3. Most of the class time will be spent covering the material from the text with
further explanations as needed. Some class time may involve student presentation of
homework solutions.
Each student should keep a homework notebook with solutions to assigned ex-
ercises on separate pages. Selected problems will be collected every other week for
grading. Final grade will be based on homework notebook, take-home and in-class
exams, and a comprehensive final exam.
