## General Stuff

This website deals with Algebra II, Spring 2015. Students are expected
to have taken Algebra I, though not necessarily from Prof. Spencer and
not necessarily Fall 2014. The basic subject matter is Fields, including
Galois Theory. (Because this is a transition year, we shall NOT assume that
you have taken the Honors Algebra I.)

## Scribe

Generally, one student will be the scribe for each class
and will take careful notes. These will be sent to Prof.
Spencer (.pdf or .jpg are fine, often photos are taken
with the student's phone) who will post them here.
