  Abstract algebra
Abstract algebra is the field of mathematics that studies algebraic structures, such as groups, rings, fields, modules, vector spaces, and algebras.
The term abstract algebra now refers to the study of all algebraic structures, as distinct from the elementary algebra ordinarily taught to children, which teaches the correct rules for manipulating formulas and algebraic expressions involving real and complex numbers, and unknowns.
Abstract algebra facilitates the study of properties and patterns that seemingly disparate mathematical concepts have in common.

  Read This: Innovations in Teaching Abstract Algebra
Presenting the fundamentals of abstract algebra to a typical class of undergraduates is easy; making them understand the subject, however, is another matter.
While there is no magic formula for teaching abstract algebra, there are many tricks of the trade, and many innovations that have only been explored in the last decade or two.
Innovations in Teaching Abstract Algebra is a veritable treasure trove of valuable ideas and should prove a useful resource for both novice and experienced mathematics teachers.

  Abstract algebra
Abstract algebra is the field of mathematics concerned with the study of algebraic structures such as groups, rings and fieldss.
The term "abstract algebra" is used to distinguish the field from "elementary algebra" or "high school algebra" which teaches the correct rules for manipulating formulas and algebraic expressions involving real and complex numbers.
Historically, algebraic structures usually arose first in some other field of mathematics, were specified axiomatically, and were then studied in their own right in abstract algebra.

 Algebra Help - Highlights in Algebra History
Algebra may divided into "classical algebra" (equation solving or "find the unknown number" problems) and "abstract algebra", also called "modern algebra" (the study of groups, rings, and fields).
This advance freed algebra from the consideration of particular equations and thus allowed a great increase in generality and opened the possibility for studying the relationship between the coefficients of an equation an the roots of the equation ("theory of equations").
Abstract algebra is a branch of mathematics in which researchers have been very active in the twentieth century.

 Abstract Algebra
The key point, and the mantra of modern algebra, is that we should call an operation "addition" if it has similar properties to grade-school addition, even if the method of computing the "sum" of two objects differs radically.
Abstract Algebra deals with many structures other than groups.
Although at this point it may seem like the study of these new and strange objects is little more than an exercise in a mathematical fantasy world, the basic results and ideas of Abstract Algebra have permeated nearly every branch of mathematics.

 Papers on Abstract Algebra
Students taking Abstract Algebra are required to write and present three papers on ‘the history of algebra’, ‘a famous algebraist’, and ‘what is abstract algebra?’ during the semester.
The first paper should include the origin of algebra, a brief history of algebra, and what algebra today is. Students choose a famous algebraist mentioned on their first paper, and write about his (her) work in algebra in detail on the second paper.
On the third paper, students write about what abstract algebra is, give an example of a group or a ring other than examples or exercises from the textbook, and prove that the set is a group (or a ring).

 BEACHY/BLAIR: ABSTRACT ALGEBRA
This edition of Abstract Algebra retains the strengths of the first edition: the gentle introduction to proof in a concrete setting, the introduction of abstract concepts only after a careful study of important examples, and the gradual increase of the level of sophistication as the student progresses through the book.
Historically the subject of abstract algebra arose from concrete problems, and it is our feeling that by beginning with such concrete problems we will be able to generate the student's interest in the subject and at the same time build on the foundation with which the student feels comfortable.
One problem with most treatments of abstract algebra, whether they begin with group theory or ring theory, is that the students simultaneously encounter for the first time both abstract mathematics and the requirement that they produce proofs of their own devising.
