CSET: Fields/Rings

What is the written definition of a field? A field is a commutative ring with unity in which every nonzero element is a unit.
What is the written definition of an ordered field? A field F is orderable if it has a subset F+ such that F+ is also closed under addition/multiplication and that for any element in F, its unit is in F+
What is the written definition of a ring? A set with two binary operations: addition and multiplication, provided that the set is abelian under addition, that multiplication is associative, and that both the distributive laws hold for all elements of the set.
What is the 4 point definition of a ring? 1. Addition is commutative 2. Add/Mult are associative 3. There is an additive identity / additive inverse 4. Distributive laws hold
What is the list definition of a field? 1. Is a ring 2. Has multiplicative identity / multiplicative inverse 3. Multiplication is commutative (abelian)
What is the list definition of an ordered field? 1. A field 2. A Set 3. Has a subset 4. The subset contains the additive/multiplicative inverses
What is the difference between a commutative ring and a ring? A commutative ring is abelian for addition AND multiplication

Use these flashcards to help memorize information. Look at the large card and try to recall what is on the other side. Then click the card to flip it. If you knew the answer, click the green Know box. Otherwise, click the red Don't know box.

When you've placed seven or more cards in the Don't know box, click "retry" to try those cards again.

If you've accidentally put the card in the wrong box, just click on the card to take it out of the box.

You can also use your keyboard to move the cards as follows:

• SPACEBAR - flip the current card
• LEFT ARROW - move card to the Don't know pile
• RIGHT ARROW - move card to Know pile
• BACKSPACE - undo the previous action

If you are logged in to your account, this website will remember which cards you know and don't know so that they are in the same box the next time you log in.

When you need a break, try one of the other activities listed below the flashcards like Matching, Snowman, or Hungry Bug. Although it may feel like you're playing a game, your brain is still making more connections with the information to help you out.

To see how well you know the information, try the Quiz or Test activity.
