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.

How to Find the Cartesian Product

3. How to Find the Cartesian Product

The Cartesian product allows us to take two sets of mathematical objects and create one new one. With one simple idea, the Cartesian product becomes quick and easy.

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

4. 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

5. 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.

How to Change Categorical Propositions to Standard Form

6. How to Change Categorical Propositions to Standard Form

Watch this video lesson to learn what categorical propositions are and how you can turn your statements into one of the four standard forms. Also, learn the names of these four standard forms and what they look like.
