    algebra I, algebra II,

    the course apparently used the text Algebra by michael artin however and the lecture notes on the site do not seem to form a good substitute for that text. i recommend buying the book. it is one of the books that is worth the price, especially if you get a good price on a used copy.

    that is their intro to abstract algebra. michael artin's book was written for the sophomore algebra course. one of my ex students took it there, and michael is a friend of mine, and i taught out of the book at UGA. at MIT that is the beginning course even if it looks like a grad course elsewhere.
