This textbook emphasizes active learning and developing students' intuition through their investigation of examples in order to expose them to how mathematicians work. It introduces abstract algebra in terms of the integers, other number systems, polynomial rings, more ring theory, groups, and special topics. Among the topics are greatest common divisors, integer multiples and exponents, quotients of polynomial rings, divisibility and factorization in integral domains, subgroups of cyclic groups, cosets and Lagrange's theorem, the fundamental theorem of finite abelian groups, and check digits.
