**This
is the web page of the course ****Algebra
III M3P8/M4P8**

The course is a general introduction to algebra.

There will be two in-class tests during the lectures on the 14 November and the 5 December (each contributing 5% to the overall credit).

Problem sheets are here: sheet 1 sheet 2 sheet 3

Solutions are here: solutions 1 solutions 2

Old tests, to help with revision: old test 1 solutions for it

Recommended textbook: Allenby. *Rings, fields and groups*.

A useful but optional reference for later parts of course is
M.Reid, *Undergraduate commutative algebra*.

Here are notes of an old course. I will use a part of them for the first half or so of the course this year.
