I've read up a little bit about Abstract Algebra and it seems like a really interesting subject. A university near me will offer an intro class in it next semester. Trouble is, the university requires Calc III as a prerequisite for the course. I'm taking AP Calc right now at school, but it doesn't look like there's any calculus in the Algebra course. Is the prerequisite simply to ensure that people enrolling have some mathematical aptitude rather than necessary to understanding the material --(I'm a smart kid with a near-perfect SAT score so I think I can probably pick up the material?)(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});
