COURSE SYLLABUS
Second Semester, SY 2020-2021
I. COURSE OUTLINE
Course Code : M114
Course Title : Abstract Algebra
Course Units : 3 units
Course Description
This course is a study of basic algebraic structures such as groups, rings, integral domains and fields. It provides a basic understanding of relations such as
homomorphism focusing isomorphism. It aims to enhance the students’ skills in constructing mathematical proofs, and develop their symbolic thinking and appreciation of
mathematical structures.

Lecture Hours : 3 hrs/wk


Prerequisite : Logic & Set Theory
Course Outcomes:

At the end of the course, the students should be able to:


1. Know by heart the ISPSC vision and mission, college goals, and objectives of the Bachelor of Secondary Education.
2. Develop a certain level of maturity along with the understanding of the nature of the subject.
3. Provide a firm foundation for more specialized work in algebra and in any further axiomatic study of mathematics.
4. Stimulate interest to pursue the topics further through individual study
5. Develop mathematical creativity and ability to formulate useful definitions and to construct sound proofs
6. Develop the value of honesty, integrity and cooperation by taking these into account in the evaluation of students’ performance in class
7. Help the students realize the importance of hard work and perseverance in any undertaking in order to attain successful results

1. Attendance: Students are expected to regularly and punctually attend classes. Late marks are given to students arriving 15 minutes after the
Classroom Policies scheduled class period. Three (3) marks is equivalent to one (1) absent. Three (3) consecutive or five (5) cumulative absences results to RE-
ADMISSION to the class wherein class cards are given to the Program Dean/Institute Director which should be returned to the instructor by the
students themselves. Failure to return the class cards means non-admission to the class
2. Uniform and ID: Students should wear the prescribed uniform ((M&F – School Uniform – Type A; TTh – Departmental/College Uniform (Type
B); W – Free Day (use of casual attire) --------------------- or as prescribed for the subjects, i.e, PE, NSTP, Field Work, etc.
3. Submission of Requirements: Requirements are expected to be submitted on or before the deadline; failure to submit on scheduled deadline
means NO ACCEPTANCE of the requirements.
4. Term Examinations: Examination permit is required before taking the scheduled term exam. An institutional clearance should be accomplished
before the final examination.
5. Dishonesty: Offenses on dishonesty/cheating during examination period will be dealt with accordingly as mentioned in the Students Handbook, i.e.
