Set Theory

In Mathematics a set is a collection of distinct objects called the elements of the set. Set theory studies sets and notations that are used to study sets. In this guide we focus on fundamental topics in set theory such as Venn diagrams, union of sets, intersection of sets, complement of sets etc.


This guide is designed to help students in the department of the Academic Upgrading and the Science department.
