As I mentioned to some of you, I did start to draft some notes toward a textbook. I don't know if I'll be able to keep it up, but here are some notes related to the first few classes.

- Introduction: rethinking linear algebra, part 1.
- Linear algebra (fancified version).
- Fields: definition, first examples.

- My home page.
- Joe Gallian's web site has some useful material to supplement his textbook.
- There are, of course, tons of sites that have abstract algebra information, including many that have course notes, problems, and solutions.
- This is the site for Group Explorer, which is software for understanding finite groups visually.
- Sage is free mathematical software. It can do algebra too. The easiest way to use it is the Sage Cell Server. It even works on mobile devices.
- Pari-GP is less
graphical, but (like Sage) it knows how to work over fields other
than
**Q**. - Of course, there is also Wolfram|Alpha.
- Wolfram MathWorld is more like an online encyclopedia of mathematics.
- Another nice one is PlanetMath.
- The hardest way to make a million dollars: the Clay Institute's Millennium Prize Problems. (One down, six to go.)
