Text: Abstract Algebra, by I.N. Herstein, 3rd Edition, Wiley & Sons. You do not need to bring it with you to class each day.
Material covered: We will cover the following sections of the text:
Groups, Rings, Fields
Attendance: You are expected to attend class on time everyday. If you are more than 5 minuites late please do not enter the room! I reserve the right to lower your course grade for absences.
Examinations: There will be two one-hour exams:
Homework: Daily homework problems will be assigned on each section of material covered in class. Homeworks will be collected and graded!
Quizzes: We will have 10 or 11 quizzes. Questions on quizzes will be chosen from problems found in the homework sets. You will be able to drop the lowest quiz (missed quiz counts as zero).
The use of cell phones is prohibited in class. Ringtones must be turned off in class and, if on, cell phones must be in vibrate mode. If there is a need to check for and/or receive a call, the student must inform me in advance to excuse him/herself to take an important call. Students must not engage in text messaging in the classroom. Students who create disturbance with ringing cell phones or text messaging, will be asked to leave the class session. Also, I do not allow laptops, tablet devices (iPads, etc.), music players, or any other electronic devices I deem potentially distracting in class.
