These notes are an introduction to the theory of algebraic varieties. In contrast to most such accounts they study abstract algebraic varieties, not just subvarieties of affine and projective space. This approach leads naturally to scheme theory.

These notes develop the theory of algebraic curves from the viewpoint of modern algebraic geometry, but without excessive prerequisites. It assumed that the reader is familiar with some basic properties of rings, ideals, and polynomials.
