Obviously having been assigned two different terms indicates these two objects are different but as far as I know,(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

algebra: vector space with the multiplication which takes two elements in vector space and give another in vector space

module: vector space over ring(extending from field)

hmm... i guess what i want to know is "is algebra an example of module?"

in addition could you sort of give me an example or otherwise so that I can concretely distinguish the two?

I appreciate your help!
