A Classical and Modern History of Algebra

This algebra survey class with Dr. Hodel was quite fun. Though challenging at times, the way Dr. Hodel mixed in the development of Algebra through the ages and was never afraid to veer off on a tangent we showed interest in was truly wonderful. By placing the history side by side with the material we were able to gain new perspectives on more abstract and challenging areas. It is my hope that going forward as a teacher I will be able to always to put the material being presented in context; thereby leading to greater understanding and retention for my students.
