An Inquiry-Based Approach to Abstract Algebra

Overview

These notes are an IBL task sequence for an undergraduate abstract algebra course that emphasizes visualization. The task-sequence was written by Dana Ernst (Northern Arizona University). Any errors in the notes are no one's fault but my own. In this vein, if you think you see an error, please inform me, so that it can be remedied. Very much a work in progress.
