Ch 49: NMTA Math: Set Theory

About This Chapter

The National Evaluation Series (NES) examination for teacher certification is now administered in place of the NMTA Math examination in New Mexico. Review this chapter's lessons on set theory so that you'll be up to speed during the testing process.

NMTA Math: Set Theory - Chapter Summary

Watch this chapter's online video lessons as you get ready to take the NMTA Math examination. This is the place to build upon what you've previously learned about mathematical sets and subsets. The lessons offer insight on the characteristics of a Venn diagram and provide examples of contingency tables. These videos could help you to:

  • Identify mathematical sets and unions
  • Describe different kinds of subsets
  • Show union and intersection in a Venn diagram
  • Write categorical propositions
  • Interpret a two-way table

The lesson instructors point out important topics that you can use to answer questions on set theory when you're taking the NMTA Math examination. You can enjoy an interactive learning experience that allows you to study virtually anywhere. The lessons include written transcripts you can consult, or you can re-watch specific scenes by using the video tags. Test your understanding of set theory by taking the self-assessment quizzes that follow each of the video lessons.

NMTA Math: Set Theory Chapter Objectives

You'll utilize what you learned in this chapter when you are taking the Statistics, Probability and Discrete Mathematics part of the NMTA Math examination. This fifth and final section of the examination adds up to 19% of the overall test score. The examination is given by computer. It includes 150 multiple-choice questions that will determine your qualifications to teach set theory and other mathematical concepts to New Mexico's public school students. You will be allowed up to four hours and 15 minutes for completion.

Mathematical Sets: Elements, Intersections & Unions

1. 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)

2. 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.

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

3. 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.

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.
