MA181: Introduction to Sets
Hi, I'm Chris Saker. Welcome to the module. When you have completed a task, e.g. watched a video, read the lecture notes, or finished a problem set, tick the box next to the item to record your progress. Doing so will also release the next item in this week's learning pathway.
This week in MA181, we will be starting to look at sets, operations on sets and the laws of set algebra. Firstly, you need to set aside a couple of hours and work through the videos and lecture notes below. Ideally, you should watch the videos and read the notes in the order given. Do make sure you take the time to read the notes in addition to watching the videos; you need to do both to make sure you have covered the materials in detail.
What is a set?
Well, simply put, it's a collection of similar things. Sets are the fundamental property of mathematics.
"The only way to learn mathematics is to do mathematics"
Hi, I'm Alexei Vernitski, I also teach on this module, along with Georgios Amanatidis.
This is a sample week from the MA181: Discrete Mathematics module. Why don't you watch the lectures and try the exercises below? Can you solve the entire problem set? 🤔
