We recall the definition of the Grothendieck group of an exact category and describe the Grothendieck groups of schemes and rings. We define the first K-theory group of a ring via a short exact sequence of groups and prove Whitehead's lemma. If time permits, we define K_0 and K_1-regularity of a ring and prove that a regular ring is K_0 and K_1-regular.
