Syllabus

MODULE 1 : Rings, ring homomorphism, ideals, quotients, zero divisors, nilpotents and units.

MODULE 2: Prime and maximal ideals, nilradical and Jacobsons radical

MODULE 3: Operations on ideals, extension and contraction.

MODULE 4: Modules and module homomorphisms, Submodules and quotient modules, Operations on submodules, Direct sum and product

MODULE 5: Finitely generated modules, Exact sequences, Tensor product of modules.

MODULE 6: Restriction and extension of scalars, Exactness properties of the tensor product.

MODULE 7: Localization

Covers standard topics of introductory commutative algebra. Basic knowledge of abstract algebra (ring, field, ideal) is needed to understand the topics. What I find lacking is the (geometric) motivations behind many of the technique and theorems. Overall it is a very organized and easy to follow introductory course.
