Learning and Teaching Methods
The module is offered as lectures with accompanying practice sessions. In the lectures, the contents will be presented in a talk with demonstrative examples, as well as through discussion with the students. The lectures should animate the students to carry out their own analysis of the themes presented and to independently study the relevant literature. Corresponding to each lecture, practice sessions will be offered, in which exercise sheets and solutions will be available. In this way, students can deepen their understanding of the methods and concepts taught in the lectures and independently check their progress. At the beginning of the module, the practice sessions will be offered under guidance, but during the term the sessions will become more independent, and intensify learning individually as well as in small groups.

Description of exams and course work
Es wird überprüft, inwieweit die Studierenden mit den grundlegenden axiomatischen Strukturen von Gruppen, Ringen und Körpern umgehen können sowie in begrenzter Zeit die gelernten Sätze und Methoden auf sie anwenden und exakt argumentieren können. Die vermittelten Inhalte werden in Form von Berechnungsaufgaben und Beweisaufgaben schriftlich geprüft.
The exam may be repeated at the end of the semester.
