Welcome to Topics in Algebra! Algebra is one of the fundamental areas of advanced mathematics. This may be surprising to you, because you have been doing algebra for years! While algebra started as the science of solving equations, roughly 200 years ago it grew to encompass the study of "algebraic structures." In this class, we will learn the basics of some of these algebraic structures, how to work with them, and see some of the power of modern algebra in terms of applications.

Make sure you read the General Information section of the web page, which describes the course, as well as the Syllabus section, as it details the logistics of the course. You are responsible for knowing this information.

Finally, we also have a Canvas page. When the link is live, it will be placed here. By and large, the two pages will contain identical information, and I will make it clear when some piece of content lives only on one site.
