Venn Diagrams: Subset, Disjoint, Overlap, Intersection & Union

1. Venn Diagrams: Subset, Disjoint, Overlap, Intersection & Union

The Venn diagram was introduced by John Venn. Yes, the Venn diagram is named after a real person! His idea was to show sets in terms of pictures. The Venn diagram is now used in many fields, including mathematics. Let's take a look at John Venn's idea.

Mathematical Sets: Elements, Intersections & Unions

2. Mathematical Sets: Elements, Intersections & Unions

Today we're going to explore mathematical sets, which are surprisingly simple! Sets are just collections of any objects or concepts, also known as elements, that can be related to each other through union or intersection.

Cardinality & Types of Subsets (Infinite, Finite, Equal, Empty)

3. Cardinality & Types of Subsets (Infinite, Finite, Equal, Empty)

In this video, we will add to our knowledge of sets. We will talk about cardinality, infinite, finite, equal and the empty set. I think you will find these very straightforward, so let's begin.

Categorical Propositions: Subject, Predicate, Equivalent & Infinite Sets

4. Categorical Propositions: Subject, Predicate, Equivalent & Infinite Sets

Watch this video lesson to learn how categorical propositions are written. You will also see what the subject and predicate are as well as learn about equivalent and infinite sets.

What is a Two-Way Table?

5. What is a Two-Way Table?

Do you believe in Martians? Do you watch football on television? A Two-Way Table or Contingency Table is a great way to show the results of all kinds of survey questions. In this video we will learn how to read a two-way table.
