Online mathematics courses

  1. Apr 13, 2013 #1
    Does anybody know of online courses in mathematics. In particular I am looking for abstract algebra and real analysis or other proof based courses. I am aware of the various videos available, but I am looking for those courses in which one registers and attends online with assignments and exams. Oh! they must be free! I can't afford to pay.

    I found the site coursera.org but no pure math classes there.

    Thanks in advance.

    Thanks jedishrfu, it looks like a great site with exactly what I need. I couldn't see anywhere where it says free. Is it for free?

    If you're getting credit for it or someone is actually reviewing your homework and tests then I think its not free.

    For free check out Khan's Academy (not geared for college) and the MIT, Harvard and Stanford courseware sites for free online courses (of course you cant get credit for them).

    As an example:
