The Final exam is Monday 12/15, 11:30am-2:30pm in our usual room.
A sample final (from fall 2011) has been posted below the homework at the bottom of the page. Ignore problem 6; localization and the noetherian property were both studied more extensively in the fall that year. (We will study them more in Math 200c).

Course Description and Syllabus:

Math 200a is the first quarter of the three-part graduate algebra sequence. In this quarter, we will cover primarily group theory and basic ring theory as in Chapters 1-9 of Dummit and Foote's text, Abstract Algebra. Math 200b will concentrate on the theory of modules and fields, while Math 200c will cover the more advanced theory of commutative rings. The detailed syllabus for the course can be found at the following link. It is important that all students read it since the full course policies may not be gone over in class. Please ask if you have any questions about these policies.
