These are notes from a first term abstract algebra course, an introduction to groups, rings, and fields. There is an emphasis on specific examples.
I hope to get the notes for additional topics in abstract algebra written soon.
The first link in each item is to a Web page; the second is to a PDF (Adobe Acrobat) file. Use the PDF if you want to print it.
[October 14, 2019] I corrected a typo in the notes on prime numbers. Thanks to Damion K. for pointing them out.
