First,could you please clear this doubt-(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

A polynomial with rational coefficients does not form a vector space over the real numbers.So,will this set of polynomials be called a module instead of a vector space?

Is my understanding correct?Any thing else I should know about modules?

Thanks
