Synopses & Reviews
This traditional treatment of abstract algebra is designed for the particular needs of the mathematics teacher. Readers must have access to a Computer Algebra System (C. A. S.) such as Maple, or at minimum a calculator such as the TI 89 with C. A. S. capabilities. Includes “To the Teacher” sections that Draw connections from the number theory or abstract algebra under consideration to secondary mathematics. Provides historical context with “From the Past” sections in each chapter. Features “Worksheets” that outline the framework of a topic in most chapters. A useful reference for mathematics teachers who need to brush up on their abstract algebra skills.
