||
GENERAL OBJECTIVES On completion of this section, students should: 1. demonstrate the ability to communicate using set language and concepts; 2. demonstrate the ability to reason logically; 3. appreciate the importance and utility of sets in analyzing and solving real-world problems. |
||
SPECIFIC OBJECTIVES: Students should be able to: |
CONTENT | |
1. | explain concepts relating to sets; |
Examples and non-examples of sets, description of sets using words, membership of a set, cardinality of a set, finite and infinite sets, universal set, empty set, complement of a set, subsets. |
2. | represent a set in various forms; |
Listing elements, for example, the set of natural numbers 1,2,and 3. set builder notation, for example, Symbolic representation, for example, A={1,2,3}. |
3. | describe relationships among sets using set notation and symbols; |
Universal, complement, subsets, equal and equivalent sets, intersection, disjoint sets and union of sets. |
4. | list subsets of a given set; |
Number of subsets of a set with n elements. |
5. | determine elements in intersections, unions and complements of sets; |
Intersection and union of not more than three sets. Apply the result |
6. | construct venn diagrams to represent relationships among sets; |
Not more than three sets. |
7. | solve problems involving the use of venn diagrams; | |
8. | solve problems in Number Theory, Algebra, and Geometry using concepts in Set Theory. | |
