I plan as follow:

I added some reference DF=Dummit and foote(third edition), and S=Sagan(second Edition). This could be useful if you want to work on some exercises. Just pick some in those chapter. Remember that it is important to work the math in order to learn it.

Proposed Presentation, Project and Applications:

My list is not inclusive and is just suggestions


Students will be evaluated on five aspects (which are parts of the life of any living mathematician). The final grade will be base on the average of the best three. 5 Participation in class (Being there, asking questions, being curious, etc.) is ALSO an important aspect of the evaluation. It may help increase any of your average above by up to 10%.
