But its definition of inseparable seems to be different from your definition.
Btw, seems to give a different definition as well.

I can see that your book considers $x^3-2$ reducible, since it is reducible over $F_3$. It seems that my book reference considers $x^3-2$ irreducible, but to be honest I'm not sure why. Wiki's definition of seems to imply that it's reducible.
