An update on RWI

I just wanted to write a quick update on Rings with Inquiry. My goal was to have the Fall 2020 version done by July 1. The main goals were to refine some of the scaffolding and expand the exposition. I've done this a bit with Chapter 1. I still intend to complete these goals with Chapters 2-4, but it will take a bit longer due to the needed prep for building flexible fall classes.

A couple notes:

  • The version posted online currently is a refined version of what I taught out of in Fall 2018. I would be comfortable teaching out of it again as it is currently constituted, even if I made no additional changes.
  • Nonetheless, I am intending to teach my own modern algebra course from the text this fall, so this is a personal teaching priority beyond just a scholarly project. It will get a fair amount of my attention this summer.

Feel free to reach out if you have any questions.
