OER Alternatives for SUU's Math 4220/4230

A list of high-quality, mathematical OER textbooks which would serve the curriculum needs of Southern Utah University's Math 4220 - Abstract Algebra I and Math 4230 - Abstract Algebra II. As these two courses are taught often as a sequence, any textbook listed below would likely serve well for both semesters.

Math 4220 - Abstract Algebra I
An introduction to the study of algebraic structures focusing on groups. Topics include subgroups, homomorphisms, factor groups, permutations, and a brief introduction to rings and fields.

Math 4230 - Abstract Algebra II
A continuation of MATH 4220 focusing on rings and fields. Topics include ideals, unique factorization domains, finite fields, field extensions, and selected applications.
