 Summary

Tasks and Competencies in the Teaching and Learning of Algebra provides a conceptual approach that will encourage students learning algebra to employ a variety of thinking processes and strategies and, most importantly, will enable them to truly understand the concepts that underlie the problems they are solving. The authors' framework develops those skills and competencies, aligned with the goals of the Common Core State Standards, that are necessary for an integrated, conceptual learning of algebra. The book's four chapters include tasks focusing on algebraic expressions, equations, and functions, followed by tasks that integrate several mathematical concepts. Each of the 48 tasks in this book contains: a classroomready task, with items arranged by increasing order of complexity a discussion of the task's main ideas and objectives solutions for each item in the task, with suggestions of various methods that students might use; and a listing of the essential competencies that students can develop by working on the task. All 48 tasks are also available at NCTM's More4U website as downloadable and printable worksheets to hand out to students. With its strong conceptual framework, Tasks and Competencies in the Teaching and Learning of Algebra is designed to enable teachers, teacher educators, and curriculum designers to help students at all levels master the ideas and practices found in algebra and to develop skills they can use throughout their mathematics education.

 Summary

Mark Sepanski's Algebra is a readable introduction to the delightful world of modern algebra. Beginning with concrete examples from the study of integers and modular arithmetic, the text steadily familiarises the reader with greater levels of abstraction as it moves through the study of groups, rings, and fields. The book is equipped with over 750 exercises suitable for many levels of student ability. There are standard problems, as well as challenging exercises, that introduce students to topics not normally covered in a first course. Difficult problems are broken into manageable subproblems and come equipped with hints when needed. Appropriate for both selfstudy and the classroom, the material is efficiently arranged so that milestones such as the Sylow theorems and Galois theory can be reached in one semester.

 Summary

"Algebra: Chapter 0" is a selfcontained introduction to the main topics of algebra, suitable for a first sequence on the subject at the beginning graduate or upper undergraduate level. The primary distinguishing feature of the book, compared to standard textbooks in algebra, is the early introduction of categories, used as a unifying theme in the presentation of the main topics. A second feature consists of an emphasis on homological algebra: basic notions on complexes are presented as soon as modules have been introduced, and an extensive last chapter on homological algebra can form the basis for a followup introductory course on the subject. Approximately 1,000 exercises both provide adequate practice to consolidate the understanding of the main body of the text and offer the opportunity to explore many other topics, including applications to number theory and algebraic geometry. This will allow instructors to adapt the textbook to their specific choice of topics and provide the independent reader with a richer exposure to algebra. Many exercises include substantial hints, and navigation of the topics is facilitated by an extensive index and by hundreds of crossreferences.

 Summary

The purpose of this book is to provide a concise yet detailed account of fundamental concepts in modern algebra. The target audience for this book is firstyear graduate students in mathematics, though the first two chapters are probably accessible to wellprepared undergraduates. The book covers a broad range of topics in modern algebra and includes chapters on groups, rings, modules, algebraic extension fields, and finite fields. Each chapter begins with an overview which provides a road map for the reader showing what material will be covered. At the end of each chapter we collect exercises which review and reinforce the material in the corresponding sections. These exercises range from straightforward applications of the material to problems designed to challenge the reader. Occasionally, we include a list of "Questions for Further Study" which pose problems suitable for master's degree research projects.
