Ch 48: OAE Mathematics: Set Theory

About This Chapter

When studying for the OAE Mathematics exam, complete the activities in this chapter to review the principles of set theory. Watch short lesson videos and complete engaging activities to refresh your understanding of subsets, Venn diagrams, categorical propositions and two-way tables.

OAE Mathematics: Set Theory - Chapter Summary

As part your studies for the Ohio Assessments for Educators (OAE) Mathematics test, this chapter has been designed to aid in your review of the components of mathematical sets and the different ways in which they may be presented. Watch videos of expert instructors as they help you gain a better understanding of:

  • Elements, intersections and unions of mathematical sets
  • Cardinality
  • Infinite, finite, equal and empty subsets
  • Subsets, disjoints, overlaps, intersections and unions of Venn diagrams
  • Subject, predicate, equivalent and infinite sets
  • Functions of two-way tables

You can further improve your understanding of set theory by completing the quizzes that accompany the lesson videos. The results from your quizzes may also prove useful when identifying topics you have not fully mastered. Once you have found these areas, organize a review of them using video tags that can take you to the key areas of the lessons.

OAE Mathematics: Set Theory Chapter Objectives

The objective of the OAE Mathematics exam is to measure future educators mastery over mathematics. When you take this computer-based certification exam you will be given a four-hour and 15-minute testing period to complete 150 multiple-choice questions. Nineteen percent of the test questions a part of the Statistics, Probability and Discrete Mathematics domain; this section may including some about set theory. The objective of this chapter is to help you prepare for these questions by reviewing mathematical sets and the different diagrams that present them.

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.
