Be aware of this and savvy about it – keep up with the lectures and the homework assigned every week – do not leave the studying until “later”.
For those of you interested in applications of abstract algebra, you could surf the web, or consult this website or this website at NASA or this other website at NASA or this other website for items to read. A website at NASA that illustrates applications of category theory (a subfield of abstract algebra) is here.
