Slide 2 - 2 2.1 Set Concepts
Slide 2 - 3 Set A collection of objects, which are called elements or members of the set. Listing the elements of a set inside a pair of braces , { }, is called roster form . The symbol , read “is an element of,” is used to indicate membership in a set. The symbol , means “is not an element of.”

Slide 2 - 4 Well-defined Set A set which has no question about what elements should be included. Its elements can be clearly determined. No opinion is associated with the members.
Slide 2 - 5 Roster Form This is the form of the set where the elements are all listed, each separated by commas. Example: Set N is the set of all natural numbers less than or equal to 25. Solution: N = {1, 2, 3, 4, 5,…, 25} The 25 after the ellipsis indicates that the elements continue up to and including the number 25.

The set of natural numbers less than 10 N = {1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9} c. The set of Heisman Trophy winners from the University of Florida F = {Spurrier, Tebow, Weurffel}

Slide 2 - 8 Set-Builder (or Set-Generator) Notation A formal statement that describes the members of a set is written between the braces. A variable may represent any one of the members of the set. Example: Write set B = {2, 4, 6, 8, 10} in set- builder notation. Solution: B = x x N and x is an even number 10 { } .
Slide 2 - 9 SET BUILDER EXAMPLE A = { x l x N and x > 12}, we would read this as A is the set of all elements x such that x is a Natural number and x is greater than 12. G = { x l x is a vowel}, we would read this as G is the set of vowels of the alphabet.

Slide 2 - 11 Set Builder Notation to Roster Form B = { x l x N and x is even} B = {2, 4, 6, 8, 10 ……..}

Slide 2 - 12 Finite Set A set that contains no elements or the number of elements in the set is a natural number. Example: Set S = {2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7} is a finite set because the number of elements in the set is 6, and 6 is a natural number.
Slide 2 - 13 Infinite Set An infinite set contains an indefinite (uncountable) number of elements. The set of natural numbers is an example of an infinite set because it continues to increase forever without stopping, making it impossible to count its members.

What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
