Algebra Interactive! is an HTML-based course for undergraduate students in all fields of science, e.g. mathematics, computer science, physics and (electrical) engineering. The novel features of Algebra Interactive are the interactive examples and tools for computing in the various structures. Many of these tools and examples use the computer package GAP, which comes with Algebra Interactive, as a back engine. Moreover, abstract notations are enlivened by Java applets, which go beyond the classical examples given in traditional textbooks. The course contains numerous exercises. Apart from the classical type of exercise (with hints and solutions), the product also presents interactive multiple-choice questions on each page and at the end of each chapter. A comprehensive accompanying printed book summarizes the contents of Algebra Interactive.
