Description
This is a college level course in Abstract Algebra with a focus on GROUP THEORY:)
Note: Abstract Algebra is typically considered the one of HARDEST courses a mathematics major will take.
This course is a step above a general mathematics course. Students should have familiarity with writing proofs and mathematical notation.
Basically just,
1) Watch the videos, and try to follow along with a pencil and paper, take notes!
2) Feel free to jump around from section to section. It’s ok to feel lost when doing this, remember this stuff is supposed to be super hard for most people so don’t get discouraged!
3) After many sections there is short assignment(with solutions).
4) Repeat!
If you finish even 50% of this course you will know A LOT of Abstract Algebra and more importantly your level of mathematical maturity will go up tremendously!
Abstract Algebra and the Theory of Groups is an absolutely beautiful subject. I hope you enjoy watching these videos and working through these problems as much as I have:)
Who this course is for
Math majors or people who are interested in learning higher level math.
