Description

Upper-level laboratory supplement consisting of two collections of labs forgroup theory and ring theory built around a suite of Mathematica packagescalled AbstractAlgebra. The Mathematica labs allow students to bothvisualize and explore algebraic ideas while providing an interactivity thatenhances the learning process. Accompanying multi-platform CD-ROM containsboth Mathematica Version 2.2 and Version 3 notebooks of all the labs alongwith additional resources
